Climber Scrambles Up 1,000ft Cliff Without Any Support

This is the nail biting moment that a man scaled a 1,000ft cliff without any ropes.

Canadian climber Will Stanhope clambered up the death-defying top section of the Chief in Squamish, British Columbia.

It took a heart-stopping 20 minutes for the fearless 29-year-old free climber to ascend the precipice.

Mr Stanhope used a crack, which stretched all the way from the bottom to the top of the rock face, to maintain his grip. he is an expert at free solo climbing, a discipline where participants forgo essential safety equipment in search of an extra adrenaline rush.

The professional climber's feat was captured on camera by filmmaker Blaise Sack, 29. Mr Stanhope also had a GoPro Camera attached to his chest to provide a first person view of the stunt.
