If You’re Looking For A Crazy Adventure, Cliff Camping Could Be Your Next Thrill

I’m not what you would call “outdoorsy.” In fact, I would call myself “indoorsy.”

But even if you’re a lover of Mother Nature and the Great Outdoors, it takes a certain kind of person to want to camp on the side of a cliff. In Estes Park, Colorado, Harry Kent’s Mountain Adventure Company allows even inexperienced climbers the chance to camp on the face of a rock, dangling above the world as they sleep.

Kent has been cliff camping for years and he says it’s a common practice among climbers. According to CNN, climbers who tackle mountain faces too high or too difficult for just one day simply camp out before continuing. “Climbing for me is like brushing my teeth,” Kent says. “It’s something I just do as part of my life.”

Cliff camping involves setting up anchors in the rock, using a pulley system to get gear up the rock wall, and setting up “portaledges” that can hold climbers’ weight.

Guide T. J. Sanford told a CNN reporter trying the experience, “You are always anchored and backed up. Redundancy is the key, and you are attached to two separate systems. It’s safer than riding in a car. It just seems scary because you are not in your comfort zone.”

Sanford knows people are freaked out by the height. He notes, “I’ve never had anyone fall off the ledge. I’ve heard stories of climbers, typically couples, getting too rowdy and causing the ledge to flip, but I’ve never had anyone just roll off.”

Sanford also says that being afraid is natural when cliff camping. “Being afraid of heights just means that your brain works properly,” he says. “As humans we aren’t supposed to be comfortable hanging off steep cliffs.”

The people who’ve done it say the adventure is totally worth it. Check out Kent Mountain Adventure Company’s video of these brave climbers.

This Guy Took A Video Of His Eyeball Getting Tattooed…So There’s That

In 2016, having a few visible tattoos isn’t quite as shocking as it was 20 years ago. That’s partially why those in the body modification community have begun experimenting with even more extreme ways to up the ante…which is how eyeball tattoos became a thing.

Even though it seems really dangerous, you can actually tattoo an eyeball safely if you know what you’re doing. In the video below, one adventurous soul chose not only to have his eyeballs tattooed, but to document the whole thing on film.

I don’t suggest watching this video if you’re in the middle of eating lunch.

While it looks kind of cool, I have a feeling that he’s going to have a hard time finding a job after this.

This Daredevil Dog Is Not Afraid Of Jumping Out Of Planes…Or Anything Else.

No, Riley the dog doesn’t want to go for a walk. For this four-year-old dachshund, it’s going to for a jump out of a plane or bust. Luckily for him, his owner Nathan Batiste is more than willing to comply with his daredevil dog’s desires. Having made over 400 jumps himself, there can’t be many owners who are better qualified to skydive with their pup. And skydive they did. 

People might not understand why this dog and owner duo go sky diving…

What an awesome jump! If you don’t feel like you’ve had enough of Riley, don’t worry. Nathan says he thinks Riley had a blast and plans to take him for another jump in the near future. Hopefully, Nathan still maintains control of the parachute.

I have a lot of faith in Riley, but I don’t think he’s quite ready to handle that sort of responsibility yet… especially since he lacks opposable thumbs.

Only The Ridiculously Brave (Or Insane) Would Attempt This Walk In The Alps.

This is certainly one way to burn off some of the chocolate you began gorging on as soon as you got to Switzerland. Sure, most of the calories will likely burn from complete and utter fear, but a workout’s a workout. Beginning in November, those interested in taking an extreme trek through the Swiss Alps can do so on the Peak Walk, a 10,000 feet high walkway that features a partially glass floor and a long look at your life. To say that it’s an intense trek would be like calling the Swiss Alps a series of hills. Take a look!

Oh, and one more thing, don’t look down.

As you can probably imagine, building the walk was no easy task.

You know you’re up high when the only way you can get materials is via helicopter.

Watch the builders in action in the video below. If you thought the Peak Walk seemed intimidating in the photos, just wait until you see this.

Think you’re too scared to give the Peak Walk a try? Well, think about this: it’s free! Yeah, see you up there.
