Pollux, Switzerland, 2012




Pollux (4,092 m) is a mountain in the Pennine Alps on the border between Valais, Switzerland and the Aosta Valley in Italy. It is the lower of a pair of twin peaks (Zwillinge), the other being Castor, named after the Gemini twins of Roman mythology. It is separated from Castor by a pass at 3,845 m (12,615 ft), named the Passo di Verra in Italian and the Zwillingsjoch in German. Together with Andre (our guide) and James I climbed the Pollux on September 14.

Breithorn, Switzerland, 2012

During my visit at Zermatt I had planned to climb my first 4K mountain. Since I have zero experience in high altitude mountaineering I decided to book a day tour with the Zermatt Alpine Center to climb the Breithorn.

View at the Breithorn shortly after our exit from the Klein Matterhorn cable car.

My First Sky Dive

Sky DivingI really like to dive under water, but last Sunday it was time for a rather different diving experience. It was time to fulfill a long time dream and do my first dive in the sky.

Me and a good friend went to Leutkirch (Germany) where Sky Dive Nuggets is located at the local airport. They offer tandem jumps from april to october on a daily basis, as well as AFF courses every week.

While the aircraft was climbing up to 4000 meters altitude in about 10 minutes, we were able to enjoy a great view over the alps and Lake Constance. Once our jump altitude was reached adrenaline was rushing through my veins. My tandem master, Steve, got us out with a foreward role, and then somehow managed to do a backward as well. An awesome experience! My free-fall with aprox. 200km/h velocity lasted for almost one minute.

At 1500 meters altitude Steve deployed the chute and the rather relaxing part of the jump began. During my flight I was able to enjoy another great view over the Allgäu. You can see the video of my first sky dive below.
