ESTES PARK - It's not for the faint of heart but there's a Colorado adventure that will let you see the Rocky Mountains like never before.
Would you try it?
It's called "cliff camping." Along with a guide, you can spend an afternoon or an overnight on a portaledge, suspended anywhere from 40 to 75 feet off the ground on a sloping cliff.
If you don't want to camp out on the side of a cliff, you can just go for a 'cliffnic,' or an afternoon picnic lunch, suspended from the ground.
A portaledge is a deployable hanging tent system experienced rock climbers use to camp out during multiple day adventures.

The Kent Mountain Adventure Center offers a variety of options, and all the gear is provided. You don't have to be an experienced climber, either.
If you are, you can arrange a climbing adventure to your portaledge, but you can also simply rappel down onto the ledge after a short lesson in the basics.
Cliff Camping is available seasonally, between May and September.
