On Friday, the 48-year-old actor opened up about a nearly fatal rock climbing experience he had, tweeting, “Not to sound dramatic, but this is the day I nearly died.”

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.

Jared posted photos from the horrifying moment, sharing that he was out with professional rock climber Alex Honnold when they took “a pretty good fall” 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 wrote.

Jared also managed to capture footage from the heart-pounding moment, writing, “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.”
