Jared Leto Just 'Nearly Died' in a Terrifying Rock Climbing Fall [Photos]

The actor posted a heart-pounding video after his close brush with death.

Jared Leto just almost died — and he has the pics to prove it.

The actor fell off the side of a mountain while climbing Nevada’s Red Rock on Thursday, and the safety rope that saved his life very nearly didn’t.

“Not to sound dramatic, but this is the day I nearly died,” he shared on Twitter and Instagram. “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.”

Indeed the “Morbius” star posted a heart-stopping pic of the rope frayed almost in half.

“It was a strange moment – less fear, more matter of fact, and slightly melancholy,” he continued in a second tweet. “The adrenaline came after, when I got back on the wall.”

“But we made it through and lived to see another day Smiling face with open mouth and cold sweat?? Overall it was actually quite fun. we continued climbing into the night…”

The Oscar-winner also shared a video — with an understandable level of swearing — of the moment he clambered to safety and realized just how close he’d come to falling to his death.

“Holy f–king shit!” he exclaims, panting heavily, pointing at the razor-sharp outcrop that had almost sawed his lifeline in two. “Holy f–k! It was fraying right at the point!”

Luckily, Jared was in pretty good hands. The @AlexHonnold he tagged is the same Alex Honnold that scaled Yosemite’s El Capitan in the 2018 Oscar-winning documentary, “Free Solo.”

Thankfully, unlike Honnold in that film, Leto wasn’t doing this climb without ropes!
