With all the talk on how ice caps melting I was expecting a different outcome to this.

Red Bull returned to Niagara Falls this week for a crashed ice event of a different sort.
Canadian ice climber Will Gadd was at the falls Tuesday, climbing a 54-metre jagged ice formation on the American side of the Horseshoe Falls.
U.S. officials were pretty tight-lipped about what was going on when first questioned by the media.

Wow... That's just Mad !! I've been to Niagara Falls a couple of times. I would not even attempt it in decent weather let alone when it's ice covered like that !! Icon_snooty

Did you happen to see the next video on youtube ?

Where the ice pillar breaks and the climber falls with tons of ice falling with him and he survived with just the wind knocked out of him. Insane Icon_jaw-dropping

It doesn't appear they had another camera or if they did they were not filming at that time even though there was another guy there. It would have been interesting to see it from a distance the moment it happened the close - up shot kind of doesn't put the whole incident into a proper perspective I.M.O.

Yes he's very lucky indeed. Most people involved would have suffered serious if not fatal injuries from that.
