    Video: Ice Climber Falls Down Mountain, Helmet Cam Captures All

    What’s more scary than falling down a mountain while ice climbing? Falling down Snowdown, the highest mountain in Wales. According to USA Today, climber Mark Roberts, 47, was scaling the snow-covered behemoth with a group when a piece of ice fell on him from above. Roberts lost his grip on his ice pick and fell more than 100 feet down the mountain. Along the way he was bombarded with jagged rocks as he tried to slow his descent. Thankfully, Roberts did not suffer any permanent injuries and was airlifted to a hospital within 30 minutes of the incident.

    The camera mounted on his helmet caught the harrowing fall on film:
