/ Fancy a night at the "most extreme camp site"?
I suppose it's an exciting day for people that couldn't do this unguided. Apparently you also get "a day’s climbing tuition thrown in and the instructor brings a safety harness and super-strength ropes."
Good business idea. Extreme form of people paying to abseil (i.e. get to where you're going to)
Anyone know any bankers who'd get a kick out of washing my ropes?
How many % of UKC do you suppose have been on a portaledge?
I dare say 99.999% of the world couldn't do it unguided...
Likewise 99% couldn't go abseiling unguided.
It's expensive, but of all the things you can waste your cash on (luxury cars, any sort of boat - they're all money sinks, redoing the kitchen)...F*ck that. Go the ledge!
Personally,I reckon being a guide for this could be tough. What do you do when your client who takes a dump multiple times a day wakes up in the night.
Where can I buy some of those "super-strength ropes"?

Or when you have couple who want to join th climbers version of the Mile High Club?
I like it.
I'm still suffering withdrawal symptoms from being away from the Lovers Leap campsite.........:-(
