    They think they`re so [email protected]? Let`s see them hang a campfire.

    At least they don`t need to worry about bears.

    I have deduced over the years that gravity hurts. So, no thanks.

    Straight down?

    I knew people did this for fun and good luck to them. But I would be rigid with terror.

    Face it: doing this kind of climbing, you`re going to drop SOMETHING important sooner or later.

    I`ve seen this photo before. They`re lying on their backs and they tilted the camera 90 degrees. Good effect, though--except for the guy in the middle who isn`t in the right position.

    Hope none of them are sleep walkers, restless sleepers (restless leg syndrome)... THAT would be one bad combination.

    i always wanted to know more about this- how far up are they, could that climb not be done in one hit etc.... I cannot see the benefit of this unless they routinely could not manage it in one go?

    @ Madduck: From what I saw online, here`s the deal:

    Climbers prefer to sleep on ledges when possible. But on multi-day climbs, sometimes it`s necessary to overnight while ascending some huge wall. It used to be that the climbers would use hammocks. But the hammocks were really uncomfortable--half of you was being crushed against the cliff face all night. So some climbers started "borrowing" aluminum cot frames from base camps and jury-rigging the bedframe against the cliff face at night. Lowe noticed this and introduced a commercial product called the "Portaledge," which is what you see here: Basically a collapsible aluminum bed frame with a fly that fits over it to keep out the wind and rain.

    The whole thing works pretty well, provided the climbers find a spot that`s sheltered from falling ice and rocks. (You can see the climbers in this photo have set up their Portaledges beneath a slight overhang for just this reason.)

    It`s possible that this is just a practice run for a larger expedition. People who engage in these activities don`t blindly trust untested equipment. They will have the equivalent of a college degree in rock face survival before a real world excursion.
