Hansjörg Auer’s Terrifying Abseil

When you’re climbing solo, you realize that you got off the route but there is no option anymore to climb up or down?!  By the way you have no gear except a thin rope, one ice screw, your harness, a belay device and you need your crampons and ice axes to finish the climb.
Challenging abseil!

    That is absolutely stupid. I’d say there was a 50% chance it was gonna fail. Guess he’ll carry a piton next time.

    I’d be abseiling off an axe. can always go back and retrieve it.
