"Climbing Is No Big Deal"

Ueli Steck says the future of mountaineering is climbing with minimal gear and a paraglider. This video shows him learning to fly and then climbing and flying from a summit, where he says, "Climbing is no big deal; it's daily business. But then, lunging off.."It appears as though he's about to be blown off the summit with his 'chute.

He obviously got good enough with his flying to climb three classic Alp peaks in one day. Story here.
