Video: Ice pillar snaps with climber on it

Epic TV has been running a series called Sub-Zero about the sport and art of ice climbing. Filmmaker Lukasz Warzecha works with four of the sport’s most respected climbers — John Freeman, Will Gadd, Gordon McArthur and Raphael Slawinski — as they push the limits of the sport and discuss why they climb ice.

In the episode just posted, Canadian ice climber and mountain climber John Freeman recounts when things went very wrong on a climb two years ago. Check out the footage for yourself and then watch the other episodes.
