The Rocky Mountains Traverse

The Rocky Mountains Traverse

Will Gadd and Gavin McClurg grab a thermal air lift towards Mt. Robson and then set flight for the Canada-US border. Along the way the paragliders push the sport of paragliding, or more precisely ‘vol-bivy’, as they journey 640 kilometres above the Canadian Rockies, hopping between seriously exposed landing sites where they’d spend the night. A 35-day journey across rugged landscapes which is the longest air journey by a paraglider ever recorded.
