Wow. I find it challenging enough to climb UP a slabby slope, but these animals are perfectly relaxed DOWN-climbing. The 3rd video on the snopes site starting around 1:25 had a cool bit with a young ibex managing some pretty big leaps to keep up with the adults. Beautiful animals! =D>

I want to find reasons to believe that video is fake but... wow.

I love nature, I hate nature.
You've never really stopped even if you feel like you have.
