Started paragliding in May 2017 with FLUMEN - Escuela de Vuelo (Marko’s school in Valle de Bravo) with the objective of complementing his other passion, high altitude mountaineering, through hike and fly in the Mexican volcanoes. As of March 2019, this includes flights from Pico de Orizaba (5,636m), twice from the main summit of Iztaccíhuatl (5,215m) and once from the more elusive Head summit (5,100m), as well as Nevado de Toluca (4,680m), Téyotl (4,660m) and La Malinche (4,461) volcanoes.
Before paragliding, Adrián started his evolution as a mountain athlete 20 years ago, rock climbing in the epic limestone walls of La Huasteca and Potrero Chico near Monterrey, Mexico, where he grew up. Since then, his passion for climbing has taken him on expeditions to Alaska, the Canadian Rockies, the Cascades, Peru’s Cordillera Blanca, the Himalaya and the Alps, among other regions.
