A chunk of ice is thrown down and sends this climber on a hair-raising plummet down a mountainside.
If you are a climber, this is a very bad situation which can turn adventure into tragedy in a matter of seconds.
This ice climber falls and takes a roller coaster like plummet down a steep mountainside. The mountaineer is literally out of control, gaining speed and not roped in for protection.
It seems incredible the climber can make that kind of out of control slide and survive. It is pure luck that allowed him to escape with his life and slide down a natural leeway without hitting a major rock face or going over a sheer drop.
This is a video that definitely needs to be linked to anyone you know who is a climber, especially those who defy the odds constantly for the rush.
