Camping out in Mt.

Everest may be too hazardous given the unstable climate conditions aboard the world’s tallest mountain, but it doesn’t hold a candle to pitching a tent on the side of a 4,000ft sheer cliff face in Baffin Island, located in the Arctic.

Hanging tents in precarious positions is just part of what it means to be a modern day explorer.

Scaling these mountains can last for weeks and explorers need to set up tents on the edge of monstrous cliff faces to rest between climbs.

Each of these photographs was taken by photographer and explorer Gordon Wiltsie, who risks his life for these stunning photoshoots.
