There are lots of things to worry about when you're rock climbing. We are pretty sure that bear attack is mostly not on that list of things to worry about. This climber in Japan would beg to differ. He was rock climbing recently and had an encounter with a momma bear protecting a cub. The way this guy handles the bear (punching and kicking the bear away from him) all while balancing on a rocky out cropping and NOT losing his balance is very impressive. it's got to be difficult to lower your heart rate after something like this and get back to climbing. Both bear and climber are okay after this incident.
