The Scariest Rappel You’ll Ever See

There's not much to say beyond the headline.  

Austrian climber Hansjörg Auer was recently out on a solo ice climbing mission when, per his own admission, he got off-route and had to improvise with an incredibly sketchy rappel, looping his climbing rope over a minuscule, barely pronounced rock nose. 

"When you're climbing solo, you realize that you got off the route but there is no option anymore to climb up or down?!" Auer wrote on Facebook. "By the way you have no gear except a thin rope, one ice screw, your harness, a belay device and you need your crampons and ice axes to finish the climb. Challenging!"

We here at TGR encourage anyone watching this to please, never attempt anything like this.

While Alex Honnold might get the fame for his free solos, this crew of young Coloradans pursues their own form of climbing: buildering. Taking full advantage of the urban playground right outside their door, these climbers put up challenging routes where most people look every day but would never think to climb. Boulder-based filming outfit Pop Top Productions documented some of these climbs in their new film , a clever take on the classic climbing film genre. Mix some hair-raising urban free
