We present first experimental results of our investigation of non-collinear high harmonic generation (NCHHG) with a chirped pulse amplification system. Collimated high harmonic radiation of higher than 9th order is observed along the bisector of two fundamental beams crossing in a xenon gas target. The obtained results show that cavity-assisted non-collinear high harmonic generation is a promising candidate for efficient generation and outcoupling of extreme ultraviolet (XUV) radiation.
