Climber Avoids Almost Certain Death on Mont Blanc

Climber Avoids Almost Certain Death on Mont Blanc – This video was shot upon the Aiguille du Midi Arete on Mont Blanc and captures a really scary moment during which a climber descending coming from the summit slips and nearly falls to his death upon the knife-edge ridge. Thankfully he self arrests very quickly, but had he gone in either direction from the ridge, it might happen to be a disaster. Definitely a frightening moment with thankfully a cheerful ending. A very good reminder of why knowing how you can self arrest is essential.
