Climber's 100-foot fall caught on video

Posted: Updated:

Video of a climber's 100-foot tumble down a snowy mountain is going viral. The British man's helmet camera captured the whole thing.

According to media reports, 47-year-old Mark Roberts was scaling Snowdon in north Wales when a chuck of falling ice caused him to lose his grip. He slid and tumbled down a gully, finally coming to a stop on a ledge about 100 feet below.

Fortunately Roberts only suffered a broken ankle. His camera also survived the crash and he was able to upload the video to YouTube.
