Paragliding in the Dolomites

Early autumn is the best time for paragliding in the Dolomites, as the air is less turbulent (or at least should be) than during the previous months of the flying season. On the first day we encountered the roughest conditions I have experienced since I started paragliding three years ago.

Climbing the Cima Piccola / Kleine Zinne in the Dolomites

On the southeast arete of the Kleine Zinne leads the Yellow Edge, an exposed and attractive climbing route. After the first ascent of the route Emilio Comici had reported about microscopic holds and falling stones. The stones had fallen and the holds had grown bigger although became polished since the ’30s.
