Landing

The field under the face slopes away is ok for paragliders, Hanggliders land around the corner to the right well back from the road. Be careful the ground rises up on the down wind leg! you can also land over the trees to the north west but only in the grass fields if you have enough height. There is a good flat top landing area.

Flying

There is often strong compression at the front of the face, it can also be turbulent in strong winds or if off to the south. The site can produce some good flying xc to the coast is possible.

Hazards

Keep away from the trees and mobile phone mast if low, Hang glider pilots don't leave it too low for the bottom landing field.
