The story centers on first-year high school student Konomi Kasahara, who since junior high school has trained her mind through various puzzle games. An encounter with her new high school’s climbing wall and its competitive climbing team changes her life.

As a seemingly added bonus to the series, next year’s Tokyo Olympics will, for the first time ever, include wall-climbing as an official event.
