Climbing into an (Erupting) Volcanic CraterBy Rocky Thompson on October 6th, 2010
Climber Drew Bristol dropped into an active volcano, getting himself within 100m of molten rock. He pulled on a special futuristic suit for the stunt. How did his rope not melt at that temp? I’m not sure what he used, but I wouldn’t have recommended putting much weight on it while hanging over the lava. Well, regardless of what kind of rope it was, I hope this video serves as a warning to the Gearheads that one is coming back on warranty soon.
