As ice climber Mark Roberts scaled Snowdon, the highest peak in Wales, a chunk of ice fell on his face, causing him to lose his balance and fell more than 100 feet. This was all captured on a camera that he mounted on his helmet, and he miraculously lived to tell the tale. Roberts told the British Mountaineering Society that apart from being “annoying immobile and bruised,” he turned out just fine after the death-defying fall.
Brace yourselves for the scariest climbing video on YouTube, which has recently gone viral with more than a million views. The viral video was curiously listed as a comedy, but most people who freefalled down an icy, rugged mountain would probably not consider it a laughing matter.
