Hanging Out...

Portaledges were invented for rock climbers doing multi-day climbs.
They're not for people who toss and turn
in their sleep.
Or those who sleepwalk.
They don't have a bathroom either.
They're offered as 'close to nature' hotel rooms at Waldseilgarten in Bavaria where the tents are either suspended over the edge of a cliff or, if you're not too keen on a mile of air under you, from strong tree branches.
You can only ascend or descend by using ropes.
A stay there does include rope climbing lessons so you can get to your room.
Oh yes, there's no room service...
