What is Cliff Camping?

As well as cliff camping, we provide an array of AMAZING COURSES AND ADVENTURES, why not try SNOWHOLING.  Cliff camping is completely unlike any other camping experience you’ve ever had. Instead of pitching a tent in the middle of a field, possibly amongst hordes of other campers and their SUVs, you’ll be suspended from the side of a cliff overlooking the sea.  Spend an unforgettable night cliff camping, with breathtaking views.


You’ll be sleeping on something called a ‘portaledge’, a hanging tent generally used by climbers when they’re spending multiple days on a big wall climb.


All you need is a sense of adventure.  We provide the 5* views.


Where can I go cliff camping?

We provide the experience at 4 different locations; Pembrokeshire, North Devon, Swanage and Dorset.  Please scroll down for further information on these locations.

What do you need to bring?

This depends on the time of year you are looking to go.  We provide this experience throughout the year.  We will advise you on what to take once you have booked.


Usually we would advise you to take some warm clothes, some personal kit, a rucksack, a water bottle, a head torch, and of course your camera.  We will provide everything else for your cliff camping experience.

A. Yes! Cliff camping – when it’s done properly, as we do it – is completely safe. We use the best gear, and you will be attached to a security rope at all times. While it’s not perhaps for the fainthearted, we find that just about everyone can rise to the challenge. We do everything necessary to put your mind at ease, and give you an experience of a lifetime.

Still not sure? Take a look at this short video of Kevin from Rise & Summit cliff camping with his two children. (Aged 7 and 5) in the Wye Valley here.

A. Of course! You don’t need any previous climbing experience to go cliff camping. We’ll teach you all the basic skills you need before you descend to your camping spot. And we are always on hand, throughout the experience.

A. We provide hot food in the evening, chosen from our menu.  We then start the morning of day 2 with a tea or coffee and one of our breakfast options.

As mentioned previously, a delicious 3-course meal will be served in the evening.  Followed by breakfast with tea or coffee in the morning.  We also provide as part of the media package, photography and video footage of your experience.

Initially it may be a strange sensation.  But once used to being on the portaledge, it’s just like sleeping on a camping bed.  With much better views!

A. You will get the opportunity for a toilet break just before we abseil onto the portaledge. We will have our own portable compost loo near to the top of the cliff. Minimising the impact we have on the environment. We will always be there to help and assist you.

A. Your instructor(s) will be nearby throughout the whole experience.   In case you need any kind of assistance or reassurance.  But far enough so you have your privacy.

A. We like to keep this very special.  So we limit cliff camping experiences to a maximum of 2 people at a time.  But can provide the experience for bigger groups.  Feel free to contact us through our contact form, email us or ring us.

A. We have covers called flysheets that we use in case it rains.  So you will be tucked away in a cosy hanging tent.

There is a weight limit of 200Kg on the portaledge, so maximum 100Kg per person if you are sharing the experience.
