5 | What a day!

Published on

We started the day with a 4h walk from Aretta to the summit Cap de Leuba. 1,500 metres in altitude later, we found ourselves in the fog…

Patience is a virtue and we waited a good three hours at the launch site until visibility slowly improved.

We hoped to take Accous while flying and then go straight on in the direction of Candanchú, because the group on the south side certainly wasn’t sleeping either… Luckily Patrick and Reto were able to take the turnpoint in the air- we were catching up!

Shortly before the pass up to Candanchú, however, we had to land and take another hike. It was already close to 6pm at the time. Up to the pass and ready for take-off in two hours? No problem!

And what a reward we got: a breathtaking evening flight of 15 kilometres until 8.45 p.m.!

But the Pyrenees are wild, let’s see what they have in store for us tomorrow!

Without them, the X-Pyr wouldn't exist.
