The two manga centers around girls who compete in sport climbing, particularly climbing artificially constructed walls while making full use of one’s mind and body. First-year high school student Konomi Kasahara discovered this sport at Hanamiya Girls’ High School after training her mind with puzzle games during junior high school. Her life changed the moment she stumbled across her new school’s climbing wall, which led her into the school’s climbing team.
