Jared Leto revealed on Twitter that he almost died after taking a fall while rock climbing with Free Solo star Alex Honnold. They were climbing at the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area in Las Vegas.
Jared posted that as they were climbing, he looked up to see his safety rope being cut by a rock. He was able to steady himself and find his footing.
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. pic.twitter.com/CGd6kIM5o5— JARED LETO (@JaredLeto) March 6, 2020
Jared shared a video after the accident, showing the frayed rope.
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— JARED LETO (@JaredLeto) March 6, 2020
