Introduction

I first experienced tandem flight with a friend of mine in 1993 and I immediately knew that I would take up paragliding in the future. However, I dedicated a lot of my time to climbing at that time. I did my first solo flight in 2003 and start more seriously flying in 2005. I continued because It give me similar feeling of freedom as climbing but from another perspective. In recent years, I attend long h&f events , which combine almost all the sports which I prefer.

Achievements

  • I started climbing in '90. Since then I have accomplished a lot of alpine climbs in winter and summer, including some first ascents. I have climbed ice and rocky routes all over the Alps. A few times I have been climbing in Patagonia, North America and Canada, where we climbed some big wall routes. My last climbing expedition was in 2005 Karakoram Pakistan.
  • 2009 second place in Xc Slo league
  • Longest flight 220km
  • Ultratrail Tor des Geants (330km / 24000m)
  • Some nice flights and runs on Bordairline and Crossalps events
