Portaledge Overnight

DetailsBook Now


Take your camping to new heights with our portaledge overnight adventure. At Apex, our guides will take you on the unique experience of sleeping on the side of a cliff overnight on these vertical camping systems. Portaledge camping used to be something only big wall rock climbers got to experience, but not any more. Prepare for one of Vail’s most exciting adventures!

I recently went out with Apex Mountain School to try out one of their new trips that they will be offering. They will soon be offering a Portaledge overnight camping trip. I had the most incredible time doing it. I would recommend this trip to anyone who is wanting to experience a trip of a lifetime. A huge shout out to our guide Scott and photographer Devon. 10 out of 10!!
