Scary footage of an ice climber losing his grip upon ascent and falling to safety emerged over the weekend and has gone viral. Remarkably, the climber is fine.
According to USA Today, ice climber Mark Roberts was hit by a chunk of falling ice at Snowdown in Wales on Feb. 24, and tumbled for more than 100 feet down the rocky slope without sustaining any major injuries. Thirty minutes after the incident, the climber was airlifted to a hospital.
Roberts, 47, shared the remarkable video clip with the British Mountaineering Council in order to preach safety in mountaineering.
