Default Climb and fly on Yak Peak

I haven't posted anything here in quite some time, but figured folks here might enjoy a trip that I documented recently with my friend, John Rowsom.

It involved climbing Yak Check, a 600m multi pitch and paraglide off the summit (Near the saddle between sub summit and true).
After a late spring and summer of hiking the range around yak to gather footage and the big day of climbing we finally finished. We wanted to try and capture everything that's great about hiking, climbing and paragliding, but of course that's impossible to do. It was an extremely enjoyable challenge.

The video is a tribute to the area around yak peak, I'm trying to picture if the paragliding pack or the film gear would be more of a hassle to deal with on that face. Also wondering if you used to post as saltfactory...

Thanks for the comments. We did the climb in late july to answer your question Kanike.

And yes I use to post as Saltfactory. I hadn't been on CT for so long I forgot I had two accounts. This one I had gotten locked out of years ago, I guess, and then I went through the resetting password process so I could post this video, not remembering old Salty was my usual handle. You guys can watch this video for free if you know what I mean.

Figured it would be a cool one to share with you all after a long hiatus
