Tumbling Boulder Nearly Crushes Mountaineer in Pakistan

“This incident happened on my expedition to Spantik which is a 7027m peak in Pakistan. We were waiting on at the base camp for a weather window so that we could climb to C1, because of continuous snowfall, this huge boulder fell and came straight towards the base camp, fortunately, nobody was hurt but it did destroy my tent and our kitchen tent and one more climber’s tent taking his gear with it down in the glacier.”

Absolutely terrifying moment when a loose boulder came crashing through base camp at Spantik Mountain in Pakistan, clipping a tent and very nearly obliterated one of the mountaineers.  HO-LY SH*T, that was close.
