This is a good example of a climbing team self arresting on hard snow. It did take them a bit longer than my comfort to stop but they didn't give up and were able to arrest their fall.

Oh Okay, Just wondering

I don't think this was a real fall, they were probably practicing and when you practice you don't want to do it with Crampons cause you can break an ankle or cut yourself and you don't get to focus on your ice axe self arrest.

Any ideas why it didn't look like they were wearing crampons?
