  • We set off from home on foot for a great adventure with a small ecological footprint.

  • We transfer the combination of mountaineering and paragliding to the 4000m peaks of the Alps and try to push the boundaries of what is possible.

  • We aim to be the first to climb all 4000m peaks in the Alps in this elegant way.

  • We benefit from each other’s expertise and learn from each other.

  • We keep an eye on each other, are honest and act with an awareness of risks and always with a sufficient safety margin and as friends.

  • We invite everyone interested to follow the preparation and implementation of our adventure online.


Our challenges

  • Equipment: Minimalistic but still have everything we need.

  • Sufficient physical and mental robustness to cope with extraordinary physical demands, in particular long, flat walks with mountain boots and heavy backpacks, many vertical metres on foot, long stages and adverse conditions.

  • Dealing with bad weather, wind, cold and heat.

  • Making good tactical route decisions based on the conditions (snow, wind, visibility, weather changes) and the human factor (our mental and physical condition).

  • Overcoming all challenges together and in a friendly manner.
