Sometimes, the margins between life and death are frighteningly small. We often, of course, take this boundary between being alive and not being alive for granted. However, as this rock climbing fall demonstrates, the moments when it shows itself to us can be genuinely terrifying for all concerned.
If they’d been any more slack on this climber’s line, this incident could have ended in tragedy. Fortunately, it didn’t end in tragedy and the rock climber involved now has a great story to tell down at the pub/his local drinking establishment. This is some pretty scary footage. Brace yourself.
