20 million people go to see Niagara Falls each year, a few people throughout history have traveled down the falls, but no one has managed to climb them—until this year. Some years the winter simply doesn’t get cold enough to freeze the massive plummeting water, but even when it freezes completely, climbing is still a dangerous feat.
Will Gadd, who was recently named a Nat Geo Adventurer of the Year, managed to scale one of the most impressive waterfalls in the world and Red Bull captured the amazing climb on film.
