Speed Flying Tamischbachturm (2035m)

September 3rd, 2011

hi extreme mountaineers!
after the lugauer summitsurfer klemens and me we drove further to gstatterboden for trying a new speedfly spot, the tamischbachturm (2035m) in the gesäuse.
we hiked from gstatterboden over the ennstaler hut.
we flew with our glider (spitfire from swing) from the summit to hieflau. the flight was great, a 9m² spitfire must be perfect for this line.
unfortunately i flew to far away from my planned landing place oder the avalanche building, so i landed at a small grassfield in front of the hunters hut! great idea but it worked well 😉
thx for this great exploring day.
cya at the river tomorrow.

Speed Flying Lugauer (2217m)

September 3rd, 2011

hi extreme explorers!
this day summitsurfer klemens and me we drove to radmer and hiked up to the lugauer (2217m) over the gspitzter stein!
what a great hiking with warm weather compared to my expedition!
after the summit we started our glider (spitfire from swing) from the lugauer plan and fly down. great flight!
thx a lot!

Mustagh Ata Ski-Expedition

August 31st, 2011

This sommer i did a mountain expedtion in china to the mustagh ata (7546m) with ruefa bergreisen.
my plan was to go up by skies to the summit and fly down with the speedglider.
the chances were about 30% to fly down from the top. nevertheless i wanted to try this action.
i got a new glider from swing – the hybrid sport 17.
so we started at 27th of july in munich and flew over moscow to bishkek in kirgisia.
our guide alex – we called him “manager” from the mountain agency tien shan travel picked us up at the airport on the morning and we drove directly to naryn which is a city on the silk road. on the next day we drove to the touragat pass (3752m) and entered china after many checkpoints (in kirgisa we had 4 to manage or wait….)
at the chinese boarder we had to carry all our luggage some meters over the border line to the already waiting truck.
fortunately the streets in china were better then in kirgisia so we had a more or nice time on the road with our new guide (mr. kong) from the mountain agency in kashgar.
after a x-ray session from the whole luggage at the chinese checkpoint we arrived at half past 7 in kashgar at our hotel. first we had to carry up our luggage to the room, but then we were happy to enjoy our first dinner at the chinese restaurant. a strange thing was, that it is normal too bring the drinks from the shops to the restaurant…. good idea – isn’t it?
we did nice and hot sight seeing in kashgar city and bought the rest for the expedition.
on saturday night suddenly there drove amor-cased water gun cars across the streets. on the morning we heard that there were some terror attacks from the uygur people with 8 murdered people. thats an ethnic minority group here. here in xinjiang region there are about 50 minority groups. you can imagine the different culture what you can see here. some days later there was an terror attack in kashgar with 14 murdered people. crazy. nobody recognised here in europe.
nevertheless we reached on the karakorum highway after a long travel the village subashi (3726m). at the evening we could see the massive mountain mustagh ata.
here we are…..
we had a nice dinner outside and enjoyed the great energy from the mountain. the night we slept in a yurt which was great and warm with our sleeping bags.
on tuesday the 1st of august the camels get packed and after breakfast we hiked in 4 hours to our basecamp (4530m). during the day the temperature rise up to 25°C. what a hot area here. but when clouds has covered the sky the temperature falled down rapidly…..
next stories coming soon – now its weekend.

Speed Flying Spitzkofel (2717m)

June 26th, 2011

hi dolomiten man wanna be’s 😉
yesterday patrick and me we hiked to the spitzkofel at 2717m in lienz.
this is the running route for the red bull dolomiten mann to the kuhbodentörl. the best time is about 1:23.
we needed for our first time with the weight of our speedgliders 3:00. so there is some difference to the best 😉
but we very lucky to be at the mountain top of the spitzkofel at about 5pm without any rain. there was an amazing view.
unfortunately there was northernly wind so we had to go downwards to the beginning of the fixed iron rope route. there we found a good starting place for our speedglider which is the starting place for the paragliders at the redbull dolomiten mann.
with our swing spitfire 11m² we fly downwards in really short time with a lot of fun and great impressions.
thx for this great mountain tour.
cya on the mountains

Speed Flying Kleiner Priel (2136m) Double Session

June 8th, 2011

Hi extremely addicted Double Speedflyers!
On Saturday Summit Surfer Patrick, Martin and Bernhard hiked up to the Kleiner Priel in Hinterstoder.
On the Mountain top there was about 50km/h southerly wind.
but it was to start with the cobra technique.
the flight was more or less a safety flight because of the fön conditions
then we hiked up a second time, and this flight was with less wind and we had a lot of fun with relative flying and rolling all the time.
thx for this great day!

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.
