Via Ferrata is an exit point in the Swiss Valley. Its mostly a wingsuit jump because of the quick start time of the terrain. You have 7 seconds to impact. So you must be moving pretty quickly if you're going to make it past the tree covered ledge below. A slightly intimidating thought while standing at an exit point. But, I'm set. My starts are fast, my exits are solid, my flights are stable. Only thing standing in my way is the most rainy season that Europe has seen since 1965.
It's officially summer. And that means Europe season for BASE jumpers. Tons of legal cliffs to fly our wing suits off of to our hearts content. But first, we must train.
2014 has been turning out to be a spectacular year so far with the newest member added to the family- my little fur face, and great flying conditions! I had been planning to spend my winter season speedriding and skiing non-stop, but with the marginal snow conditions, I have reverted back to my summer sports plan and have been wingsuiting in the Chamonix valley all season!
“When the daylight comes, do you feel it? Leave your bag of bones, Underneath your bed, Everything is as, It should be, I’m leaving now, As I should be….” My morning alarm song “No Way” by The Naked and Famous was playing and there certainly was no daylight outside. Although I didn’t realise it yet. Today was going to be a special day. Today, a dream would come to life.
Flow states. That is the topic of focus for this new documentary. How does the brain make decisions at such high rates of speed? How does a climber manage to block everything else out and focus on linking moves together to climb higher and higher? I think the final product will be pretty neat!
