Kristoff climbs a steep mountain with a pair of pickaxes. He uses a length of rope and a branch as a pulley to bring Sven to the top. After their ascent, the ice harvester and reindeer take a moment to admire their surroundings – an oasis unaffected by Elsa's winter.
|Chris Buck||So this is another Kristoff intro – we love this one – [Jennifer Lee nods] but it was kind of cut for time. What it does do is it shows [Transition to a succession of three stills from the scene in which Kristoff uses his pickaxes to scale a cliff.] Kristoff in action – a big mountain man.

The scene opens with Kristoff jabbing a cliff wall with his pickax. He proceeds to climb up using two pickaxes, coming to the underside of a piece of the cliff.
