Scariest Campsite Ever?

We thought that nothing could surpass the Blair Witch Project for the scary-camping factor. Yet now we’re thinking we’ll take trees whipping around in the dark and a shaky camera over camping on the side of a mountain any day.

The same can’t be said for adventure climber and photographer Gordon Wiltsie. For over 30 years he has pitched tents on vertical cliff faces, capturing life thousands of feet off the ground. A new exhibit of his work is being shown at the Mountain Light gallery in Bishop, CA. Looks like it will be an¬†incredible¬†show.


Speaking of high-intensity camping…we might be open to stealth camping, depending on the day and as long as we aren’t in Texas. We’re a bit iffy on setting up a tent in Gansbaai, South Africa anywhere near the shark-infested waters that surround the city. Mt. Everest may also pose a camping issue, even when set up on flat edges of the mountain.

Still, we appreciate what lengths adventure photographers will go to in order to get the job done. Hopefully the thrill of surviving being suspended in mid-air makes it all the more worth it for them.
