Cliff Camping

Who do you know that has spent an evening watching the sunset suspended from the side of a cliff?

How about waking up on your birthday from the portaledge overlooking the endless Atlantic horizon?

Or make a proposal that will take their breath away in more ways than one!

DARE to be different!

Cliff camping is a must for any adventurer for their bucket list and an experience that you will never forget - and we can show you how...

What is Cliff Camping?

A Portaledge is a tent in the world of vertical life. It is super strong but made from light weight material which is attached to the rock. These have been used to make major climbing ascents all over the world and were created for climbers who don’t have a ledge large enough to sleep on.

All you need is a sense of adventure, a head for heights and a basic level of fitness.

How it works

Your instructor will meet you at the agreed venue. The portaledge will be already set up for you. All you have to do is walk down to the cliff area where the Instructor will make you feel relaxed with the environment. Once made a safe area of the cliff top, he will give you the skills to abseil into the portaledge. Once here you will be made to feel at home. The instructor will be close to hand if you need him but far enough away so you can enjoy the view and sunset of the Dorset coastline.

Our instructor will be on hand if you need anything and coach you on how best to move around and make the most of your night on the ledge. You will always be attached to the cliff face and made to feel safe.

Once settled, your instructor will lower your dinner down to you for you to enjoy the sun setting. After your dinner being hoisted away you will be allowed to enjoy the evening views and the sea waves below you. You will be tied on at all times to keep you safe. In the morning your instructor will greet you with fresh coffee, bacon and egg rolls. Finally, once breakfast is finished and hoisted away, you will be able to climb easily to the top and back to the meeting point.


At each of the meeting points there is a public toilet. In addition we carry a small mobile toilet set. The toilet will be at the top of the cliff and within easy distance of the portalegde. The environment that we work and play in is very important to our work ethics and we respect this very much therefore we only leave footprints.

Weather conditions

Waterproof covers that can cover the whole portaledge are available if there is a risk of a shower. At the same time, we reserve the right to cancel the booking if the weather is looking too bad for a good experience. In that eventuality, an alternative date or a full refund will be offered.

Amazing to be lying on a portaledge above the sea and feeling really safe. It was so relaxing and an amazing experience! Would definitely recommend it!

Really nervous about getting on to the portaledge but once I was on it, I felt really safe and comfortable. Was so relaxing listening to the sea and watching the world go by.
- Michelle Baker

Amazing to have the experience of sleeping on a portaledge without having to climb a big wall first! Brilliant experience and would recommend it to anyone!
- Glyn Ethelston

So comfy and relaxing, I could spend a lot of time on the portaledge! A great experience and made all the better to have Eddy talking me though the portaledge and how to abseil to it.
