Rock climbing used to be one of Slam Duncan's favorite things to do for fun. But one day, climbing Westridge Cliff with his scout troop, Slam loses his foothold. Luckily, his safety harness held, but that doesn't stop Slam from being terrified. Soon, he can't even manage to complete the mountain biking courses he's ridden on for years. When Slam's forced to climb down the cliff without safety gear, his friend Dozy comes up with an idea that might help Slam conquer his fear of heights. But can Slam get over his phobia for good, and win the mountain bike race, too?
