The D4 Portaledge

Barry Ward, founder of Durango Sewing Solutions, is proud to be fabricating and distributing the D4 Portaledge designed by legendary big wall climber and innovator, John Middendorf. Early in 2017, John launched a successful D4 Kickstarter Project to support a whole new design concept based on his original A5 portaledge. Barry was John's lead production guy back in the early A5 Adventure days in Flagstaff, Arizona, so getting Barry back on board to make the new D4 Portaledges was a no-brainer.
