When you’ve been out in the mountains all day, the sun is setting, you’re tired, cold and hungry, it’s easy to be tempted by the fast way down.
In this week’s Weekend Whipper, two climbers decide to glissade a long snow chute near Mount Whitney in California and one loses control.

“The east-facing slope had softened in the sun all day, but after we started down it went into the shade and immediately iced over,” one of the climbers
writes in the video description. “Then my partner, who was above me, fell 750 feet down to the rocks below.

“It all happened so fast. One moment she bumped me, then she was gone. It took me over an hour to reach the place where she came to a stop.

“You never want to experience this with any climbing partner, let alone the woman you love…”

Happy Friday and stay safe out there!
