Fabian Buhl's Patagonia Cerro Torre paraglide flight footage

di

The video of Fabian Buhl paragliding off the summit of Cerro Torre in Patagonia on 7 February 2020.

"On the 7th of February, before the sun peeked over the horizon, and while most of us were asleep, Fabi Buhl flew from the summit of Cerro Torre, the first person to do so after climbing up it." It was with these words that Rolando Garibotti announced the incredible paralpinism feat carried out by 29-year-old German alpinist Fabian Buhl who shortly beforehand had flown off the summit mushroom with his lightweight Susi 3 AirDesign paraglider, after having climbed to the summit on his own accord.

All previous flights, as Garibotti explained, were carried out after the climbers were transported to the summit by helicopter (Matthias and Michael Pinn with Uwe Passler in 1988 and Roman Tschurtschenthaler in 1999). Here’s the footage of the ascent - with truly outstanding images of climbing the final pitches on the ice mushroom - and the exciting take off and subsequent flight among the most beautiful mountains in Patagonia.
