Dachstein Extreme

15.08.2010

 

Obertraun's sporting highlight
Is it enough to take to the skies paragliding?
No, for first of all you have to undertake the challenge of reaching the mountain summit - the start of the event!

Is it enough to negotiate steep mountain paths to climb up to the summit?
No! First of all there is a vertical 1000m high rock face to conquer before you attempt the rest of the rock climb!

Is it enough to cycle down the steepest ski slopes at top speed? No! There are parts where your personal best will not be enough!

Is it not enough to brave the elements to swim? No! You have to come a long way to reach the water, and only the brave can contemplate the breath-taking dive into the depths!

To achieve all this, you will need a team of 4 sportsmen, and each must be prepared to give his best ever performance to stand a chance of surviving the challenge!
