So this is terrifying: Two years ago, ice climber John Freeman was scaling a gigantic hanging ice pillar in Banff National Park when one of his axe swings triggered a crack that sheared the whole thing off. In seconds, he was in free-fall, captured by his helmet cam. He only just uploaded the video, and Epic TV has got the story:
Despite the tons of ice cascading down on him and the steep slope, Freeman survived with not much more than a few bruises and scratches. He even went climbing the next day.
I’ve always wanted to try surfing, but never on a falling ice waterfall. Jeez.
