A meeting with a view

There’s no stopping these two: Whether it’s downhill biking, climbing, alpine tours or deep-snow descents – André Eschelbach (left), proprietor of metal engineering planners AE Plan in Wikon, and Gerhard Limacher from RAICO Swiss share the same passion for outdoor sports. The pair have known each other for 20 years and have planned and realised numerous façades together. Last autumn they set off on a climbing tour on the Säli rock in Olten. After two hours of clambering on wet, crumbly rockface they reached the top via the so-called “Viva las Vegas Route” and enjoyed the fabulous view of the Jura Mountains over coffee and cake.
