Taking to Twitter, the Kings and Queens singer wrote: "Not to sound dramatic, but this is the day I nearly died. 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 added: "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..."

In the video you can here a very shocked Leto shout: "Holy f***ing s***. Holy f***. It was fraying right at the point".
