UK Climber and Pilot, Squash Falconer, recently rode her motorcycle from her home in Derby, England, to Chamonix, and then climbed and flew from the summit of Mt Blanc. Along the way Squash was filming for a BBC show that will be airing in November of this year. Squash chose the Ozone Ultralite 19m and the Oxygen1 harness, and was supported by her friend Irwyn Jehu for the climbing and flying portion of the trip. Squash recently climbed Cho Oyu in the Himalaya and currently has her sights set on even more exciting peaks to fly from, so stay tuned for more exciting news from her. Squash's blog tells the story very well with a lot of great photos, check it out here and also have a look at the video at this link, which shows not only the climb up to the summit and her flight, but a bit of the ride down from England. Congratulations Squash, excellent work and we're glad you liked the Ultralite ;-) Cheers from all the Team!
