Don’t you think that the natural step forward for climbers and hikers is paragliding? I think that there is not a better way to get down from a mountain. The North Face has made a short film on pro climbers that are taking paragliding, pure 13 minutes of fun.
Paragliding is the fastest growing air sport and now with ever-lighter materials it just gets more and more friendlier for hiking and flying or even climbing and flying also called para-alpinism how cool is that? Enjoy
