More convincing evidence that wearing a helmet mounted POV cam causes accidents.

I guess the saving grace is that in order to helmet mount a camera, you have to wear a helmet. He is one lucky redcoat.

Damn, I broke both my ankles, an elbow and a my skull just watching that clip.

I'll bet I'm not the only one who needs new underwear after watching that. I kept waiting to see his ice tools go flying by or hit him after he slowed down.

Exactly, he had plenty of opportunities, or when he was sliding head first over rock outcroppings. I'm thinking that as hard as he tried to kill himself, he just couldn't get it done. crazy

I think we will see more of this. I can't remember the last time I climbed and didn't see a camera mounted to someone's helmet.

Glad he wasn't seriously injured.

My goodness -- I don't want to see a camera-recorded long fall from cliff face to ground with only the camera surviving.

Or this one. Makes climbing feel much safer than skiing.

If I had taken either of those last two falls I would have destroyed all video evidence, not published it. Glad they were OK.
