While we are pros at organizing and conducting canyoneering, hiking and rock climbing tours, sometimes our clients ask for something a little different and special. That’s why we came up with our unique adventure tours the highlight being our exclusive Portaledge Adventure Tour.
What does the Portaledge Adventure entail?
A portaledge is simply a hanging cot that enables rock climbers to sit or sleep on cliff faces during a climb. It’s basically like a rigid hammock with an aluminum frame for support that climbers set up on the side or ledge of a cliff.
Taking part in our Portaledge Adventure will be an experience second to none. Under the expert instruction of our professional guides, you will be challenged to confront your fears (if you’re afraid of heights) and step out of your comfort zone. You don’t need to have any prior climbing experience as our guides will tailor your adventure to your fitness level and climbing abilities.
Whether you’re flying solo or are part of a group looking for a thrill that’s out of the ordinary, we are sure that sleeping on the edge of a cliff in Moab, high up off the ground, is a memory that will last a lifetime!
There’s simply no way to describe the magical feeling of dangling off the side of a cliff while taking in the gorgeous views of the Colorado Plateau and the magnificent rock formations spread out across the terrain. You’ll be in awe of the natural beauty around you. When the stars come out at night, you’ll be blown away by how much clearer and closer they’ll seem from your vantage point.
But is it safe?
Much as our clients are wowed by the prospect of spending a night suspended high on a cliff wall, there’s always some hesitance at first.
One of the most common questions we get is – Is the portaledge adventure safe? Yes, it is!
You might be apprehensive about rolling off the portaledge in your sleep or even tripping over the edge but there’s really no cause to worry. You will wear a harness that’s connected to the main anchor by a rope so there’s no possible way you’ll fall down. Additionally, our experienced guides will be with you throughout so rest assured that you’ll be in good hands. We’ll provide the technical gear, equipment and expertise so you can focus on having the best adventure of your life!
