Black DiamondCliff Cabana Double Portaledge

From Yosemite to Baffin Island, the Cliff Cabana Double is ready.

The Black Diamond Cliff Cabana Double Portaledge comfortably sleeps you and one other tired, beat-up, worn-out aid climber so you'll be rested and ready for another day of big wall climbing. An incredibly strong single-point attachment combined with quick-set slotted corners and a cam-lock leveling system ensures a fast, easy, and solid setup when it's time to turn in, unless you want more work after a day of hauling bags. Stash this ledge in the included haul sack, clip it to the bottom of the pig, and enjoy another day on the big stone.

  • One anchor point, tensioning and adjustment straps, and slotted corners for the frame tubing allow for ease in assembly
  • Bed-tensioning system (six pull straps) and middle spreader bar eliminate sag
  • Quick-pull adjustment tabs with cam-lock buckles for fast and easy leveling
  • Six stash pockets give you a place to put small things so you don't drop your fork from 18 pitches up
  • Multiple daisy chains allow for organizing gear
  • Haul sack included
  • Fly sold separately

Good but Not Great

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Once you are eventually able to set it up, the Cliff Cabana is an awesome, burly ledge that makes camping in the vertical world feel very bougie. However the weight of this thing is not insignificant when you are hauling it up thousands of feet and the overall design of the ledge makes setting it up a real chore (practice practice practice on the ground before your first wall and know that setting it up at a hanging belay is much more time consuming...). Bottom line if you want a well built and comfortable ledge than by all means get the Cliff Cabana (especially if it is on sale), however if you are looking for something lighter and MUCH easier to set up then I'd recommend something like the Ultralight Double Portaledge from Runout Customs or a FISH ledge instead.

Big and bomber, a little tough to set up

    Used this on the captain recently. I made the mistake of NOT setting it up on the ground before going up...but still got it together. Practice with it on the ground, so its easy while hanging on the wall. Otherwise its got lots of great features.
