Rock climbing can be a very fun sport if done correctly. There is just something about scaling the almost impossible looking cliff that makes it all the more exhilarating. There is even a degree of danger involved in the sport as something dangerous could happen. It seems that is exactly what happened in this clip here!

This Mountaineer 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.

Talk about being one close call. Good thing no one was hurt as that was truly a scary moment to behold. Aside from all that seriousness, you have to admit that watching that moment was pretty cool!

Please share this incredible video with your family and friends as it will surely leave them in awe! This is one clip that no one should ever want to miss!
