The afternoon flights started late at 4:30pm (wind too variable & light before) but a bunch of PG pilots were then treated to easy and smooth climbs to cloudbase at 6k.
A filtered sun at cloudbase…
Golden sun rays, about 30 min before sunset. Later, had to spiral down through lift to land before dark.October 6, 2021 at 11:19 AM #13846Jonathan DietchGeneral Member
Thanks Jerome. Those photos are great.
Since I fly HG, how far is the hike to launch currently?October 6, 2021 at 11:53 AM #13847David WebbGeneral Member
From where the 4×4 drops off, it’s less than 5 minutes up a short trail. If you went with a PG, it would probably be a snap for both of you to carry a hang to launch.October 7, 2021 at 4:20 PM #13859Jerome DaoustGeneral Member
As David mentioned, the hike is short to the “Mid-Spine” launch from where the vehicle drops you and your gear off.
I would be more concerned with setup area, as it probably is limited to the launch itself (picture, without weeds at the moment). If I were still flying HG (I did for a while), I would prefer launching from the top (1 hour drive from the LZ, Google map and Schematic) where there is lots of setup area.October 7, 2021 at 5:47 PM #13860Jonathan DietchGeneral Member
Thanks David & Jerome. I can handle this with my single surface hang glider. I last flew there 13 months ago. It’s a really fun site.
