Mountaineer Stefan Barthel and his crew were developing new sports climbing routes in Spain when they captured this amazing moment.
During a process called “bolting”, where permanent anchors are fixed in a rock as a form of protection for climbers, the man seen in this video was clearing loose rocks when a major rockfall occurred. The camera follows the rocks as they fall down the side of the mountain, crushing along the way. Luckily, the area is remote and no other people were around.
While it is not common for such large rocks to become loose, proper safety precautions were taken and no one was hurt.
