“This was the best, most authentic guided adventure I have ever experienced.”

-David Ciani: General Manager Stanley Hotel, Estes Park CO.

Perhaps you’ve heard about it. Maybe you’ve seen it. Now YOU can do it! Spend a night camping out on a sheer rock face hundreds of feet off the ground. Cliff Camping should be on every adventure seekers “Bucket List!”

Or join us for a “Cliffnic” where we do just lunch or dinner. Enjoy the portaledge 40-50 feet off the ground while having a delicious lunch or dinner up on the vertical wall. Perfect for beginners, children,  and families.  Whatever you choose we’re sure you’ll feel the excitement of the Cliff Camp experience.

You’ll experience the excitement and views that only a wall climber can have.

You and your KMAC guide will set up a wall camp utilizing the portaledge. After learning some climbing basics, including rappelling, and how to ascend a fixed rope using mechanical ascenders, you’ll head up to camp. High off the ground, you’ll set up your portaledge, hang out, “relax,” have some tea and snacks, and marvel at the setting you are in as the adrenaline subsides. You can even get some climbing in before dinner. We’ll crawl into our sleeping bags before nightfall and get ready to observe the night sky. After breakfast, you’ll rappel back down to Terra Firma eager to share this unique extreme adventure with friends and family.

Celebrate a birthday from the portaledge. Or make a proposal. Be creative and make it the most unique experience that you’ll never forget! Don’t forget your camera and phone! A professional photographer is available to document this adventure for you. Contact us for more information.

1 to 4 people can go over night Cliff Camping.  Offered May through September. While we encourage as much advanced notice as possible, it may be possible to book a cliff camp the day before departure.
