Don't look down - a group of climbers ascending a cliff in the Arctic have to camp on the cliff face.

Suspended by ropes and safety lines the climbers get in to their tents suspended thousands of feet above the ground during their ascent of the massive rock face. To make matters even more precarious, falling chunks of rock and ice pose a constant danger.

"For many people, a camping trip is enough to get them sweating before they've even put up a tent pole."

What the hell is wrong with these people? I can think of an easier way to commit suicide...some way less strenuous, anyway!

Know what that means? You would have to camp sober. Camping sober, no scarier thought.

All fun and games until one night you forget where you're at and stumble outside to take a leak.
