Dolomiti: Marmolada


Last year I climbed the route "Moderne Zeiten" on the Marmolada south face (Report here)
Paragliders were circling around and above us the whole day. There I decided to learn
Paragliding and be up there one year later. (see my comment on the climbing report)
I am really glad I could make this dream come true exactly 12 months later, toplanding
on the peak.
Here are some pictures on that much more convenient way to conquer the Marmolada.

Starting on Col Rodella (near Sella Pass) passing the Ciavazes south face and Piz Boe


The last thermic-pitstop before the jump to the West-ridge of Marmolada.

And 1h30 after starting we're the first pilots to reach the top that day,
but certainly not the first people: There are lots of alpinist already.


Touchdown and we made it.   Sending out the good news...


After finishing a FAI triangle of 75km, landet at 6PM next to my car
on the Sella pass ;-)


There is only one problem left this evening:
Where to put all those endorphines? ;-)
