Jared Leto recalled the day he almost died while climbing a mountain after his safety rope was suddenly cut and left him ‘dangling some 600 ft’ at Red Rock in Nevada. He shared a picture of himself mid-climb along with a picture of his cut rope on Twitter.
According to his account of the incident, he was on the wall with Free Solo climber Alex Honnold when he fell and the safety rope holding him up started to fray.
‘Not to sound dramatic, but this is the day I nearly died. Took a pretty good fall climbing with @AlexHonnold at Red Rock. Looked up and within seconds the rope was being cut by the rock while I dangled some 600 ft in the air. I remember looking down at the ground below.’
It was a strange moment – less fear, more matter of fact, and slightly melancholy. The adrenaline came after, when I got back on the wall. But we made it through and lived to see another day 😅🙏🏼 Overall it was actually quite fun. we continued climbing into the night… pic.twitter.com/Ua6DMLV7fE
