FRI NIGHT VID: Ice Climbing in the Depths of a Glacier

Our Friday Night Video this week features Dani Arnold deep in the Plaine-Morte glacier in Switzerland, attempting to climb his way back to the surface. Arnold navigates his way through the glacier's hidden labyrinths, in what turns out to be a mixture of ice climbing and caving. During his climb upwards, Arnold reflects on the rapid retreat of glaciers year by year. Glaciologists estimate that the Plaine-Morte will be completely gone by 2090.
