Alone and hit by an Avalanche!


On February 8, Colorado-based Leland Nisky was hit by an avalanche.

He was ice climbing unroped and alone, making the final moves of The Ribbon (WI 4; 400 feet) in Ouray, Colorado.

“This was probably one of the most terrifying experiences I’ve had while solo climbing. Took absolutely every ounce of strength I could muster to keep holding onto my tools.
I was on edge about posting this to social media, but it seemed too insane that I had caught it on camera to not. Grateful for years of experience and training in stressful situations to keep me calm and allow me to make it through this freak situation and get back home safe”
