Nine daredevils have gone over Niagara Falls in barrels and lived to tell the tale. This week, ice climbers Will Gadd and Sarah Hueniken became the first to reverse the trip.


The pair became the first to ascend the world-famous falls on Tuesday, following a 30-foot-wide (9-meter) strip of rotten spray ice that formed along the left edge of Horseshoe Falls, which rises up 150 feet (46 meters) as it straddles the border between the United States and Canada.

Are they really climbing the Falls or the ice built up on the land next to it?

That's pretty incredible. No safety line? I presume the line dangling from him will be used as a safety line for the next guy?
