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. 

"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.

PSA: This Kayaker Caught in the Death Grip of a Sieve is a Reminder to Stay Safe on the Water

For those not familiar with the jargon of kayak dangers and obstacles, a sieve is when water is forced through an opening in a rock. Water can flow freely through it, but with something like a kayak or a person, this is not always the case. Jordie Searle found himself on the wrong side of a sieve while paddling the Nevis River for Red Bull's Flow Hunters.  RELATED: The Worst Kayak Carnage It is haunting to see the footage of a man literally fighting for his life.

Kayakers have a twisted sense of humor. Running massive class V rapids with just a crew of buddies is one thing, but getting dropped in the middle of nowhere in southern Alaska is a whole new level of nuts. They even find plenty of time to chuckle and laugh throughout the madness. Filmmakers Coopery Lambla and Tyler Allyn teamed up to capture kayakers Todd Wells, Jay Mahan, Eric Parker, Chris Korbulic, and Jeff Shelton running stout first descents in one of the most remote parts of the
