The Thirty Seconds to Mars frontman was climbing up Nevada's Red Rock with pro climber Alex Honnold when near-disaster struck.

In the video, the 48-year-old can be heard speaking to Alex, saying: "Holy f***ing s***. Holy f***. It was fraying right at the point."

Taking to Instagram, Leto recalled the incident - which actually happened a couple of years back - telling his 10 million fans: "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 went on: "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..."

Responding to the post, one of his concerned fans wrote: "Are youuuu serious!!!!! Omg I can't believe that, thank God everything is good now and you are safe."

Playing it down, another added: "Well, that would be slightly terrifying," while a third said: "OMG Please please please be careful, I have no idea what I would have done if I found out that you'd died, I'm so happy that you're safe just stay safe okay."

Someone else put things into perspective, writing: "You never realize how thankful you should be of life until you experience a near death incident."

Another commented: "I know Alex [Honnold] is a good guy and he hopefully always keeps an eye on you, but better be careful."

Alex Honnold, 34, is a professional climber who was the subject of the 2018 documentary Free Solo.

Leto previously spoke about the incident during a 2018 appearance on Live and Kelly and Ryan. At the time, he admitted that he hadn't been climbing 'this way for very long but I've always loved the outdoors'.

He recalled: "I took a fall. As I swung out over 600 feet... the rope was being cut by the rock. It got core shot, which is when the outside layer of material was shredded."

When host Kelly Ripa, 49, told the star that she would 'hate for him to go out that way,' Leto remarked: "Well, it's not such a bad way to go out." Hmm, we're not convinced.
