Mission Yeti: Trosa - Salmone 2010

posted Dec 28, 2010, 11:13 AM by Christian Thio   [ updated Nov 22, 2011, 6:54 AM ]
Status: Completed!
Date: 29.12.2010.

Join us for this nice hike'n'fly-combo! 
And the question is: will everybody be able to land in Capoli?! You need a glide ratio of 6:1 and with some nord wind, it's a quite hard task to fly! So let's consider plan B (La Streccia 630m) or even plan C (Ronchini 300m)...
Only Mani completed this task to 100%. Biagio landed in a very small open spot between trees, not far from the target. Thio went to Prada 900m and joined the team after a short hike. Andy didn't believe in his Yeti glider and decided for plan D: landing in Tegna Pozzo 220m and... GAME OVER!

Route: Cimetta 1670m - Cima della Trosa 1869m - fly to Capoli 1001m - Monte Salmone 1560m - fly to Tegna 220m (Pozzo, the beach).
Heights: 780m up (1h+1h45', easy-medium).
Meeting: 29.12.2010, 07:45 S. Antonino, 08:00 Quartino, 08:30 Orselina (cable-car departure).
Mountaingliders: Thio, Mani, Biagio, Andy.
