Mountaineer Talks About Sleeping In A Hanging Tent On A Mountain Side

Mark Synnott, a 45 year old mountaineer who has been climbing mountains for over 30 years now is one of the most prolific adventurers of his generation. He is one of those mountaineers who keep on searching for unexplored and unclimbed rock walls and this passion of his has taken him to expeditions in places like Alaska, Baffin Island, Greenland, Iceland, Newfoundland, Patagonia, Guyana, Venezuela, Pakistan, Nepal, India, China, Tibet, Uzbekistan, Russia, Cameroon, Chad, Borneo, Oman and Pitcairn Island.

With every new expedition, Mark Synnott indulges in a new extreme adventure and in one particular video he talks about how it feels to sleep in a hanging tent on the side of a mountain. Yes, he sure did that. There are special kind of camps known as portaledge which are specially made for hanging at the side of the mountains. Mark says, sleeping in a hanging camp feels like “being in the craziest tree house that you can possibly imagine.” Also, he talks about his experience of facing the hurricane-force winds which could possibly suspend the entire tent from the mountain.

Let’s see what other experiences he shares in this 2-minute video.
