What to bring to the portaledge 🎒📝 / Suggestions:

1- If its summer-fall time it will be very nice to have a battery powered little fan. Although both sides of the portaledge have zippered doors and ventilation is good. We can provide this at no cost if you don’t have it.
2- Bring water, snacks.. No Alcohol!!! of any kind.
3- The portaledge is hanging thus its not in the solid ground, you will not need a sleeping pad. You can bring a sleeping bag but again if its summer-fall time we can provide you with a bed sheet and that should be enough.
4- Bring headlamp. Your hands should be free of stuff, you will be climbing and belaying. A small daypack is more than enough.
5- Clothes, towel and other things that you will not be using at the portaledge can stay in your car or in a designated area. Car is 50 feet away from you or so. Bathroom is at less than 50 ft from you.
6- Look 👀 into our guidebook for recommendations around:
