Good ridge soaring site near town. If you haven't been here before, contact Cloudbase Paragliding Club or Hillflyers Club, check on the current access arrangements, and preferably organize your first flight with a club member who has good knowledge of this site. This site is privately owned, so is sensitive and could easily be lost. Contact local pilots in Geraldton before heading up there to get an update on current access situation. The site is on Chapman Valley Rd about 5km out of Geraldton. There are two gates opposite each other. The one on the left has a box just inside the gate and leads to the NE and SE sites. There is no problem with parking for lots of cars
Take care at these sites with the conditions. The SE site is potentially dangerous in high wind. The back of the ridge is not that far away and if you do not have enough height you will have rotor to deal with. The potential for gusty thermals is high. Be in touch with the conditions. All these sites are good for sleddies and new top landings. 500ft-height restriction applies. Site is directly under landing approach for Geraldton airport. Ridge drops steeply behind in places - large rotor.
