A 25-year-old climber has survived after falling 700 feet from a mountain in Scotland.
The young man, who has not been named, was ice-climbing with two friends when he fell at Coire Cas in the Cairngorms in Scotland. He said the three friends were crossing the ice-covered Head Wall of Coire Cas when one of them became entangled in his crampons and began sliding down the slope.
Despite trying to hold on with his ice axe the climber hurtled 600 feet down the slope and then carreered a further 100 feet over rocks and ice.
