Hardcore mountain climbers have no time to find flat ground to sleep while they"re on a climb. Any space will do.

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...

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

They don`t gotta pee anymore. But really, these guys are crazy-brave.

Its not the hanging off a cliff in a tent that`s the worst part, its the douchebag in the tent next door who keeps getting paper out of his backpack and making slow tearing noises whenever you`re almost back to sleep...

My history teacher a few years back (really cool dude) showed me a picture of his friend a few years back who had taken a picture from a tent like this.

Pretty cool/frightening stuff.

I imagine the sleep would be nice, but I`d be attaching a rope to myself. I would rather wake up hanging by my thighs then wake up to a clank and a short lack of gravity followed by a sudden painful stop.


Oh, you wouldn`t "feel" the stop. hahaha

"Damnit, Rick, we`ve been hiking for hours and we STILL haven`t found decent ground!"
"Don`t worry, Jimmy, I know how to make a campground that can defy gravity!"
"Seriously?"
"Yeah, here`s a photo of when I set up tents on the face of a cliff."
*Rick reaches into his backpack. In doing so, his hand slips on the rope."
"AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!"
*The photo flies towards Jimmy and he reaches to grab it. Clutching it in his hand, he examines the pic.*
"Seems doable."

Nope...not gonna do it...ever! I`d get stuck with one of those smartasses that would shake the tent and yell earthquake and then would laugh maniacally - that`s the kind of friends I have.

I toss and turn a lot in my sleep, so this seems like a very bad idea. I mean, one overly long toe nail and you fall to your death.

Unless I was maybe 2 feet off the ground, then yeah. A couple thousand will get me in one.

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

I`d not only be questioning if i sleepwalk out, or the security of the nail holding me up there, or the 2000 foot drop but also the stitching in the tent! Nothing could convince me to do that!

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
