36.17188, -115.13974, Las Vegas, NV, USA 35.796165, -115.505877, Bailout LZ - north side of dirt road - slopes slightly downhill (into the wind) 35.803892, -115.48502, Launch Ramp </googlemap>
Tabletop is the primary warm season hang glider launch in Las Vegas. It faces southwest and has a well-constructed ramp. The ideal time to launch is from 2pm-3pm. At this time powerful thermals will create strong (15-25 mph)cycles at launch so a wire person is usually required.
The bailout lz out front (see google map) is marginal at best. When flying this site you really want to get up a couple of thousand and head over the back, where better lzs are available - fortunately the strong thermals in this area almost invariably allow good climb outs.
The rough dirt road to launch requires 4 wheel drive.
