Speedflying Kleiner Priel

July 11th, 2010

Hi Speedflyer and Skyrunner!
This Day Patrik and me(bernhard) we hiked up from Hinterstoder with our speedflyer Gin Yak to the Kleiner Priel (2136m above sealevel). we needed 2:45 hrs. nice walking 😉 then we waited one hour for good upwind and ran down like a 100m sprinter and jumped over a rock edge… Lo and behold! We were flying ;)) the first flight was really great because of no big thermal disruption.
We landed on the landing place in Hinterstoder.
Thanks to Daniela for the warm welcome at her flight school Hinterstoder.
Because we had so much fun we decided to hike up a second time. 1.5 liter water and everything is possible we thought – also at 32°C..
we managed the second walk in 3hours. unfortunately at the starting place we had some tailwind but it was possible to start in a lull.
we had good thermal upwinds. on the landing place there were “strong” windy conditons. after 3100m of height on this day and 5500m of height on the weekend i enjoyed the roast at the afternoon.
thx for the great weekend. cya on the mountains or in the air.
have a nice week.
