Wow, what composure the dude shows. Love the music when he is being dragged "tra-la-la".

Agreed. The guy's calm and perserverance is incredable! Remarkable video.
Dragging yourself through that powder would be worse than rapelling down that face.
Glad the dude came out of it alive. I couldn't take my eyes off that exposed core of rope! :shock:
