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.

Mega ramps are intimidating for most accomplished skateboarders, but imagine sizing one up as a 12-year-old. As we’ve quickly come to learn, Sky Brown isn’t your typical tween, often skating beyond her age. This week she cleared the hefty gap at Elliot Sloan’s backyard mega ramp. She was joined by Sloan, her little brother Ocean, and riding pal Tony Hawk, who cheered her as she faced her fears.
