Smoking the Crack – A New Low in Proximity Flying + Coupe Icare 2011

Grinding the Crack

This is a jump site just outside of St Hilaire du Touvet near Grenoble. My old climbing buddy La Fouche’s deck is just next to it and you can hear the rush of wind as these lunatics fly past.

He has yet to share with me the sound they make when they hit the ground…

And speaking of St Hilaire, the Coupe Icare is happening from 22-25 September featuring a sky filled with completely mad Frenchies doing what they do best. This is a great place to pick up a second-hand wing with over 10,000 sq m of used equipment. Check the website for details.

  2. this is not in grenoble, is in walenstadt in switzerland. i live there and seen the jump. the climb up that wall is very nice. cheers, oliver

  3. fortunately i’ve been many times to cham and the climbing is not comparable. but you have a very nice scenery, an awesome lake to swim in afterwards and some very challenging routes. 10+ pitches routes in the grades VII-VIII around one of the 7 peaks of the mountain range makes it still very attractive. also in winter there are some nice off piste runs with some adrenalin factor in it! worth a visit! 😉 give me a message if you want to come.

  4. This explains the UFO sightings
