Ideal Hammock Adventures
Attention All Travelers!
For those of you who enjoy a clean mountain breeze, a hammock may not be the first thing that comes to mind. Much like a hammock, the port-a-ledge design allows climbers to sleep on the side of a cliff while remaining safety anchored. So feel free to exchange the work hammock for the possible use of another compact, portable sleeping arrangement during your next klettersteig, or via ferrata adventure. Despite the language used during an ascent, mountains challenge all of us. The real question is the quality of the experience. We only have so many days in our lives to speak the words: tyrolienne, Eiger, sportklettern, noboru, bergsteigen, alpinismo, faire de la varappe, escalada en roca , scalare, and rotsklimmen. Be ready for your next climb and those friendly belayers along the way.
A couple different types of rock formations and rock climbing can be enjoyed while visiting Aruba. Aruba is in the south Caribbean, only miles off the coast of Venezuela. Click the link above and explore our experience bouldering granite rock formations and ascending the overhanging limestone, sport lines on Aruba's south-eastern coast line. Hammock camping is available 2000 feet left of the many sport wall, under overhanging rock, bomber boulder problems, and just above deep white sand.
Several different types of rock formations are available while visiting Bonaire. Bonaire is in the south Caribbean, miles off the coast of Venezuela. Click the link above and explore our experience bouldering rock the overhanging limestone formations of Bonaires eastern coast line. Bouldering Bonaire is for the bravest of climbers! Do not forget the snorkeling gear.
Steep Limestone rock formations will keep you busy while visiting Puerto Rico. Multi-pitch routes litter backcountry, bamboo hide-a-way, stalactite formations. Climbing in Puerto Rico is a must do for the "hammock traveler."
Steep Limestone, Marble, and other rock formations can be found along the coast lines of this large island. Sixty meter rappels into sinkholes reveal walls of climbable root systems that force one to use crack climbing techniques. Many stalactite limestone formations are available for new route establishment. Climbing in the Dominican is also a must do for the "hammock traveler." Reasonable room rates can be found along the coasts for those wanting a shower for the night.
Steep Limestone rock formations cool you off while visiting this beautiful island of the Mediterranean Sea. While the south-eastern coastline is home to quality deep water soloing, single and multi-pitch routes litter the island's western mountains. Climbing in Mallorca, Spain, reminded me again-and-again of Rifle, Colorado, due to the general steep craggy nature of developed areas, route difficult, high quality limestone, and friendly locals.
Steep Limestone routes are a dime a dozen and pizza is affordable. While mostly known for the concentration of steep single pitch routes, multi-pitch routes litter backcountry, alpine walls. Climbing in Arco, Italy is great for the "hammock traveler." Deep water soloing is limited but available along Lago de Garda!
