    it`s the angle that makes it look not far but if you just follow the wall with your eyes it is a pretty good drop and I am pretty sure that bottom you are seeing is just a ledge there is more tot he mountain

    This has been on here before. Still awesome.

    Don`t you worry about them. Those tents are tested before they leave the factory, with one or two from each run being deliberately abused till it fails as quality control. And, the stitching around the connector cone is not a continuous thread, but several overlapping stitches that use a lockstitch sewing pattern. If one of the stitches breaks, it almost can`t unravel; if it does, the others will still be there, unbroken and raveled. What keeps them from falling is the same thing that lets nail-beds work.

    I have never heard of anyone to fall from one of those things. Would I do it? HECK NO! I`m certainly crazy, but I`m not stupid. :p

    Basically, the problem takes care of itself - you wake, you remember you`re 100ft in the air hanging by a taiwanese-made rope, and suddenly both your bladder and your bowels no longer need emptying.

    My question is how did they even get to that spot? It`s a sheer face below and I`m guessing above also from what I can tell.

    I`m going to assume this is meant to trick our minds. I think they took the picture sideways. They`re actually on flat ground.

    I was raised that way, I was lucky if I could sleep on a bed. A bed of nails that is.

    Um no dude. In extreme alpine climbs the SAFEST place for a tent is hanging in the lee of an overhang, from the point of view of avalanches, rainstorms, animals, meltwater, unsafe ice under the foundational snow, etc. Also the rocks absorb heat during the day and release it at night.

    Respect.

    It might be safe - but I wouldn`t be able to sleep, I`d be constantly waiting for the fall.... I once fell drunkenly asleep in a greenhouse on a rickety sunlounger.. As I dozed off I felt myself slide into a deep sl..BANG. Over on one side, head through a glass pane, suddenly sober looking back up at the jagged hanging over my neck.

    These guys could fall for hundreds of yards, blissfully unaware in their slumber...
