These are some of the best climbing mushrooms that you are ever going to find. Oh wait, portaledges not portabellas. Nevermind. I meant to say that these are the best ledges that you are ever going to come across. The fact that you can create a flat surface for sleeping up a tree or on the side of a mountain is pretty incredible. It’s a little known fact that the cradle that was used in rockabye baby was the first attempt at designing an effective portaledge.
I know that it can be intimidating when you are trying to select a piece of equipment that could be the difference between having a nice rest in the middle of an expedition or falling to a horrible death. Fortunately, these are some of the best portaledges so you can trust them to be reliable, durable and effective tools for keeping you and your gear suspended safely.
You don’t just have to use your portaledge for climbing though. I have started keeping mine set up on one of the walls in my house. It basically acts as a portable top bunk for sleepovers, as well as giving my cats someplace comfy and safe to curl up where they won’t be bothered by the dogs. It’s been my experience that dogs are less comfortable in portaledges but that may be because I forgot to take the cats out and a minor kerfuffle erupted. So in conclusion, portaledges are necessary and awesome pieces of climbing adventure equipment, but you have to take all of the cats out of them first.
