Eis, Klettern, Fliegen – Abenteuer in Schottland

März 3, 2016

Der Buachaille Etive Mòr ist einer der markantesten Berge in Schottland. Vor kurzem sind unsere Freunde Mark Robson und Bren Reid die Westroute (North Buttress) hinaufgeklettert um mit ihrer ultraleichten Ausrüstung wieder hinunter zu fliegen. Hier ist ihr kurzer Bericht, und ein schönes Video. Vielen Dank, dass ihr eure Abenteuer mit uns teilt. Ein Cheers vom gesamten Team.

Glad you liked the video – it was only shot using our mobile phones as an afterthought!

The route we did was North Buttress (West Route) Grade IV 4 – one of the great classic climbs on Buachaille Etive Mor in Glencoe. Conditions were perfect – light winds, blue skies and fantastic bomber neve.

Climbers/ Pilots – Bren Reid flying an Ozone Ultralite 2 16 and Mark Robson flying an Ultralite 3 19.

Bren sensibly chose to use his helmet to contain his crampons in his rucksack whilst airborne… “Because I’m more scared of landing on them than of flying without a helmet”. Needless to say, the landing with a rucksack full of climbing hardware was much smoother for me with the UL19.

Ascent, from car to summit took us a leisurely 5 hrs. The descent straight back to the car park an even more leisurely 5 minutes.

All the best,
