Just a quick video about a surprisingly good canyon in CO:
Awesome video! Cool adventure.
I am enthralled. Fantastic video - looks like an awesome adventure. How much do those gliders weigh?
Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it.
Full size paragliders like the ones we used in the video usually weigh in the 8-12 lbs range.
Smaller and lighter "miniwings" can weigh less than 3 lbs and pack down to the size of about a nalgene (incluing the harness!). We decided not to use these types of wings for this outing though due to the increased landing speed (due to wingloading and high altitude) paired with the very technical landing zone.
Wow! Excellent Adventure AND an Excellent Film!!!
Speed wings? With climbing harness or lightweight flying harness?
You guys ever do ropebags?
Fantastic adventure and video. Thanks for sharing.

We actually used our full size paragliders for this flight, as we didn't want to be coming in too hot for the rather technical landing. we were using our lightweight flying harnesses.
And yes, I've used ropebags before and quite like the efficiency they offer, but I actually don't descend all that many canyons, so I haven't got around to buying any yet!
That was unbelievable!! You started pointing out the far side of the valley at first and I was thinking "Why did they just hike all the way up that hill then??" Super cool.
