Wearing a gray hard hat, the 23-year-old prince descended a 200-foot (60-meter) rock face by rope, using his feet to steady himself.
"You're just waiting for me to fall over, aren't you?" he joked with waiting photographers when he reached the bottom.
More than 3,500 people were detained during unprecedented mass protests that swept across all of Russia in support of Alexey Navalny on January 23
