Camping and rock climbing are two adventurous sports that seemingly don’t go together. After all, sleeping in a tent hanging hundreds or thousands of feet above ground sounds more like a once in a lifetime experience than a hobby. But thrill-seekers have turned it from unthinkable to a bucket list expedition. It is, however, not for the faint-hearted. Adrenaline lovers need a courageous spirit, proper rock climbing equipment, and a portaledge – it’s like a portable camp bed that mountaineers sleep in during vertical ascents that take a few days. Some may prefer this kind of extreme camping because there are no crowds or annoying neighbors and the panoramas are unparalleled.
#1. A 4,000ft cliff – Great Sail Peak on Canada’s Baffin Island
The Great Sail Peak on Canada’s Baffin Island may be the most dangerous campsite in the world. The Daily Mail wrote about a few “daredevil explorers,” scaling cliffs and pitching tents at the height of more than 300 double decker buses. Some climbs can last weeks and the people attempting to conquer them need to rest. Setting up a tent in the air seems like a logical move. Source
