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.
I once knew a place called "the trail",
Where my body used to thrive without fail.
But then life got in the way; The trail waits for another day,
While the next pant size soon arrives in the mail.
