At the time the Thirty Seconds To Mars frontman took to social media to reveal he almost fell some 600 feet while rock climbing at Nevada’s Red Rock.

The harrowing, but still exhilarating, experience happened when he fell off a wall while scaling a cliff with professional rock climber Alex Honnold, and the safety rope holding him up began to fray along the sharp ridges.

 He recalled his thoughts as he saw the rope supporting him deteriorating as he told Men’s Health: ‘It was like an acceptance, and a little bit of sadness. It wasn’t even fear. It was like, ah, not now.’

Leto went into a bit more detail about the harrowing experience on his Instagram post two years ago.

At the time he wrote: ‘Not to sound dramatic, but this is the day I nearly died. Took a pretty good fall climbing with @alexhonnold at Red Rock,’ he began in the caption of two photos and a quick video from the scene.  

‘Looked up and within seconds the rope was being cut by the rock while I dangled some 600 ft in the air.’

 The Dallas Buyers Club star then described the flurry of emotions and feelings that flooded through his mind and body.

‘I remember looking down at the ground below. It was a strange moment – less fear, more matter of fact, and slightly melancholy,’ he said.

‘The adrenaline came after, when I got back on the wall. But we made it through and lived to see another day.’

With some time to let the experience sink in, Leto added, ‘Overall it was actually quite fun. we continued climbing into the night.’

Leto was able to climb to safety and point out just how close he had come to falling to his death

‘Holy f**king s**t,’ he said while breathing heavy in the video.

He quickly pointed to the sharp ridge that had almost cut his safety rope in two. 

‘Holy f**k! It was fraying right at the point!’ he explained as the excitement of the moment kicked into overdrive.

Honnold, who was Leto’s companion during the near-death fall, is best known for being the only person to ever to free solo climb El Capitan in Yosemite National Park.
