Getting ready for the tracking trip.
These trips are not suitable for total beginners.
A minimum of 50 tracking jumps is recommended to participate to the trips, and you must have jumped regularly during the last month to be current.
Also, keep in mind that you must be fit, as these jumps require long hikes that might affect your performance if you are exhausted when arriving at the exit point. A good physical condition is mandatory if you want to safely enjoy your tracks and be able to jump several days in a row.
Guiding and accommodation.
I will hike with you and show you the different lines and exits you can get. I will also jump to film you in 2-ways, or more depending on the exits.
All these jumps are trackable with 2 pieces tracksuits, but onepieces and small wingsuits are welcome to fly other lines!
Trip is starting on Monday and finishing on Saturday evening so everyone gets enough time go back home.
On Sunday morning, we will do an additional jump for people who have time to stay.
Accommodation is not included.
You can find hotels, but I highly recommend the camping as it’s the easiest way to travel around.
The campground we are usually staying in costs 6-7€ a day + showers.
In the San Lucano Valley, Pala 4 exit (1450m) is the shortest access we have with about 2 hours hike. It is usually the afternoon jump for motivated people who are keen to go up even after having hiked 4 hours in the morning.
Monte Agner classic exit: 5-star-jump, 1950m trackable, close to 1 minute tracking, one of the longest tracking jumps in the world.
The access requires 4 hours hiking, including a Via Ferrata, The journey can be reduced to 3 hours if we get a shuttle.
There’s a 9 bed bidon (refuge) 20 minutes away from the exit. If the forecast is very good, it is possible to sleep in the refuge and jump in the morning with the sunrise. Some blankets are available in place, but a sleeping bag and warm clothes are highly recommended. The hike will be a bit harder because of the food and water you need to carry.
Cima Busazza: after a 4 hour hike you will be on one of the most beautiful exits of the Dolomites, just over the Torre Trieste. The altitude to landing is 1700m, but you get about 1400m freefall, depending on your tracking skills.
Castello Nevere: the easiest exit around with a 13 seconds rockdrop. It is in the Torre Trieste area and the hike is as long as the Cima Busazza one (minimum 4 hours) with a 50m pretty vertical Via Ferrata.
