These breath-taking images show a fearless climber becoming the first person in the world to ascend a 300m frozen waterfall, without ropes.

Dani Arnold, 33, risked his life to carefully navigate the ice pillar 'Beta Block Super' in Kandersteg, Switzerland.

He managed the astonishing feat in just one hour and three minutes - despite the risk of up to 100 tonnes of ice falling on top him.

Dani said: "I don’t want to downplay the risk and the enormous danger as I love my life. But I also love my dreams and ideas.
