5 hours to the summit

Paragliding pilots and rock climbers, Brendan Reid and Mark Robson, tackled one of the great classic routes in Buachaille Etive Mor in Glencoe last week.  With perfect conditions and light winds, Brendan and Mark took on the Grade IV 4 route up the North Buttress with ultralight flying gear.

Brendan on an Ozone Ultralite 2-16 and Mark Robson flying an Ultralite 3-19 both launched from the summit after 5hrs of climbing the route manned with crampons and pick axes. The flight straight back to their car only took them a leisurely but they were able to take some great footage of their adventure to share with us.
