Mountain XC and evening soaring
Western Slope XC
A mountain drive 'n hike site with multiple aspects including one of the few north launches in the area.
Mordor offers great evening soaring along the south facing bowl. XC pilots will find Mordor a great option when the local convergence dips south and makes Douglas Pass unlaunchable. BLM camping is permitted in the LZ.
When driving in,please slow to reduce dust when passing the houses at the base of the book cliffs. Once at the LZ take Lapham Canyon Road to the base of the trail to launch. Please ensure you park off the road to allow others to pass. Road to launch is bumpy but passable by Subaru or similar vehicle.
Winds below 15mph on launch. Aspect: N/NE or S/SW.
