Status: Completed!
Date: 30.10.2010.

Don't think about the wind, just join us for a wonderful hike and let's hope in smooth flights!
We knew from the forecast that wind in the mountains will be strong. At the Gotthard pass the weather station measured over a 100 km/h! And yes, it was strong. At Cucchetto about 20 km/h and on top of Pizzo Corgella 30 km/h and more. Too strong for paragliders, but still easy for speed flyers! Only Andy and Pistons did it from "top to bottom", the others started at Cucchetto 1571m.

Route: Camorino 250m - Croveggia 938m (cabins) - Cremorasco 1100m - Cucchetto 1571m - Pizzo Corgella 1707m.
Heights: 800m up (2h 30', medium).
Meeting: 30.10.2010, 09:00 in Sant'Antonino (Wendy's house).
