Physical Description:

Printed in black, two figures in profile climb either side of a volcano, reaching a hand out to each other over the peak. Each figure has a climbing pick and a rope, holding one object in hand while the other object is tied to their waist. The volcano is spewing smoke and droplets while a zigzag giving the impression of lava cuts down the front, and there are other peaks visible in the background.
