Marco Milanese's idea of perfection is to climb rope-free and then fly back down into the valley. Said and done. He recently climbed the Delagoturm free solo, one of the six Vajolet towers in the center of the Catinaccio Group, and threw himself off the summit in his wingsuit.
"For me, perfection means climbing free of ropes and hooks and flying back into the valley," says Marco Milanese. The concept of the climber, mountain guide, highliner and wingsuit pilot is simple, but also tough. Especially when it comes to making it a reality. filmmakers Bruno Pisani has captured Marco Milanese's understanding of aesthetics and perfection in a gripping short film. First this climbs free solo on the exposed one Delago Tower, then he jumps off the summit in his wingsuit and flies back down to the valley.
