- After many months of preparation, weeks of acclimatisation and 9.5 hours of climbing, I finally reached the summit of Kahn Tengri on the 6th of August. I was completely alone on the highest mountain I have ever climbed and the weather conditions were more perfect than I could have ever hoped for. My plan had always been to Speedfly from the top, but for months I had questioned if it was even possible to footlaunch a 12m Speedwing at such high altitude, where a momentary lapse of judgement would have extremely high consequences. In contrast to my cautiously sceptical approach, my close friend, climbing partner and eternal optimist @lostmariner took a slightly different viewpoint. He told me to “go up and send it, you’ll be fine!” and he was right. The conditions were ideal so I took his advice, did some final checks and launched from the summit. It was an exhilarating flight unlike anything I have ever experienced before. It was extremely fast and I landed on the glacier 3000 meters below just 5.5 minutes after taking off. To the best of my knowledge and extensive research this is the first time anyone has flown a Speedwing off a 7000m peak and is the highest altitude flight on this type of wing to date. I would like to thank everyone who supported me during this project as I couldn’t have done it without you! It's been a dream come true so thank you very much. 😎👍

- Often long dusty roads are more challenging to me than steep and technical up- and downhills. It`s the monotony that kills me inside. But it`s that little boy, that comes out, when I see playgrounds like this one and he so: "Yeah, let`s make it an adventure!" Let me a thumb up, when you think so too! #timetoplay #sonypro #trailrunning #salomonrunning #skyrunning #mountaineering #rockgarden #outdoor #adventurer #hiking #mountainrunner #ultratrail #expandyourplayground #getoutandrun
