History

How long have people been hang gliding here? Any thing of interest happen here in the past? What competitions have been held here?

Geography/Meteorology

It is a small ridge, 800 yards (800 meters) long and 100 yards (100 meters) high. The prevailing winds are south in the mornings, becoming thermic toward mid-day. Thermals can become too violent to fly, near noon, because you may not be high enough to recover when dumped out. Several hours, starting at dawn, are soarable and very smooth on most days. Winter time conditions are soarable, but Polar.

Clubs/Owners/Manager

Who runs it? Is there a club? Are there rules? Is there a new pilot procedure? Is it invitation only?
