Speed Flying Grosser Pyhrgas (2244m)

May 29th, 2011

This Day we went Speedflying to the Grosser Pyhrgas in Spital.
there was a lot of new snow above 1700metres of altitude.
at the first flight i had north westerly wind at about 40km/h.
at the second walk i met 2 nice mountaineering girls with running shoes walking the hofersteig in the snow from freistadt. big respekt!!
first i thought 2 times must be enough, but i got a sms from patrick they wanted to do a flight together with me. so i flew down to the Pyhrgassattel and hiked up with the other summitsurfers a 3rd time to the summit. oh you can imagine my tired tighs…
martin flew with his parachute to spital and patrick and me we flew with our speedglider the hasenbergrinne downwards as fast as possible 😉
what a great flight together.
so speedflying alone makes half as much fun and togehter is the ulitimate experience.
have fun together and enjoy your life.

Mountaineering Seehagelmauer (1809m)

May 29th, 2011

Hi extreme Cloud covered mountain seekers!
Yesterday Andi (Toagandi) and me we drove to Hopfing near Molln and hiked with our parachute equipment up to the Seehagelmauer for a sundown flight.
we needed 1:45 to the Feichtauhütte and then another 1:30 to the mountain top of the seehagelmauer.
there was a lot of fresh snow on the path.
the 2 feichtaulakes looked really great for swooping with the speedglider…
we reached the summit at 20:20. there was great light but also 50% of the mountains around were covered in clouds. shit.
so we hiked around and looked for more or less good starting place. with a speedglider a would habe been started for sure somewhere but with such a big paraglidewing you need a lof of space.
so we hiked downwards in a pebble gorge.
i took fortunately my gps with me so we were able to went back to the right way.
at 23:10 we reached totally exhausted and tired the car.
so the next time we have more time for launching our wings.
have a nice week
