Jared Leto Nearly Died While Rock Climbing with 'Free Solo' Star Alex Honnold

Jared Leto nearly almost died while rock climbing once.

The 48-year-old actor shared the story with his fans on social media, revealing that yesterday (March 5), he had gone climbing with Free Solo‘s Alex Honnold in Nevada, and took a fall.

“Not to sound dramatic, but this is the day I nearly died,” Jared wrote on Twitter. “Took a pretty good fall climbing with @AlexHonnold at Red Rock. Looked up and within seconds the rope was being cut by the rock while I dangled some 600 ft in the air. I remember looking down at the ground below.”

He continued, “It was a strange moment – less fear, more matter of fact, and slightly melancholy. The adrenaline came after, when I got back on the wall. But we made it through and lived to see another day 😅🙏🏼.”

“Overall it was actually quite fun. we continued climbing into the night…”

Jared even shared a little video from the climb. Check it out below!
