This Minute is meant for Boy Scouts.
There was a mountain climber that decided to climb a famous mountain all alone, so he could be the first solo climb.

He started climbing and it was becoming later and later. He decided to keep on going because the summit was not that far ahead. Soon it got dark, very dark with overcast and no stars or moon. Everything was black.

At about 200 feet from the summit, he slipped and fell. He skidded a ways and then flew right off a sheer cliff, straight down.

He kept falling. He thought certainly he would die. But then he felt a jolt that almost tore him in half. Fortunately, he had staked himself with a long rope tied to his waist.

In those moments of stillness, suspended in the air he had no other choice but to shout, "HELP ME GOD, HELP ME!"
All of a sudden, he heard a deep voice from heaven, "What do you want me to do?"
"Do you REALLY think that I can save you?"
"Then cut the rope that is holding you up."

There was another moment of silence and stillness.
The man just held tighter to the rope.

The next morning, a rescue team found a frozen mountain climber hanging from a rope...

... THREE FEET above the ground.
