A second ripping off the edge

It’s real

This is the first time in history that anybody has had a permit to go ice climbing there

Temperatures will continue to drop

I haven’t fallen off in 30 years of ice climbing

I’d like to get one more day where I don’t fall off

I’ll be honest I’ve got butterflies (in my stomach)

It’s never going to freeze totally

There is a lot of water flying around here, it builds up and then it breaks

There was no guarantee that this would work

I’m an ice climber, you know that is what I do, I travel all over the world and climb frozen waterfalls

I just climbed the absolute biggest burliest coolest waterfall in the whole world Niagara Falls
