This is The Most Fucked Up 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.

Jimmy Chin Releases Trailer for New Film: Free Solo

If you don’t know who Jimmy Chin is at this point, you’re likely living on the moon. The acclaimed photographer-turned-film director, who was behind massive projects like Meru, has been quietly plugging away at yet another film. While the subject matter may already be familiar to most, this film looks to shed light on some new angles and capture it in true fashion.  When Alex Honnold free soloed El Capitan in the summer of 2017, Chin was with him on the wall to capture the feat.

This is exactly what you don’t want to happen halfway up a climbing route: the entire pillar you just ascended collapsing at your feet. We can’t find more details on the climber or route just yet, other than the climber was likely Spaniard Antonio Saldaña Santaella, but wherever it was, it’s scary.  Almost as good as this gem from the ice climbing world:
