One ice climber is lucky to be alive after what looks like a nearly fatal fall during a climb in Ouray ice Park, Colorado. Even though not much is known about the video that has recently gone viral on the internet, it depicts an ice climber who would have fallen to death if his fellow climbers had not helped him at the precise moment.
The climber, near the summit of his climb, finds himself in a difficult situation. The ice he is climbing appears to be melting, turning from ice sheet into waterfall. However, he is able to hold it tight and wait until his fellow climbers throw him a line. The climber clips the line to his belt, just before the thin sheet of ice gives way about a minute later.
Watch the heart-stopping video to see how the man narrowly escaped death.
