    Was I the only one hoping he was going to bite it? I mean, as the saying goes, I`m not *for* the killing of stupid people, but let`s remove the warning labels and let nature take its course.

    @Kegomatix - Why? He nearly goes near the start of the video too.

    I`m all for skipping the start of uneventful video`s but often the buildup in a vid like this adds to the tension.

    `Not for me, this sport`

    I`d love to try ice climbing...but only when I know the ice is solid.

    Because, there is really nothing exiting about ice climbing unless you are the one doing it..

    I think that look on his face was a mix of two overpowering messages:
    1. "You just saved my life, I love you"
    2. "Yes I am an idiot, perhaps you didn`t notice"

    Why was he not on a belay to begin with??
    When climbing bad ice like that he should have been secured from the start!

    I like how she tells him like 5 times to hold on for one minute while they get the rope set, and he`s just like "NAHH, I GO NOW!" before they tell him he`s good to go..
