A small ridge facing S to SE, with the potential to reach a higher peak (Moel Morfydd - 550m) to the east. The site / general area can get very thermic and turbulent; and there is a risk of being blown back over the ridge-line. If landing fields are overshot, the ground quickly falls away towards the Dee Valley. This is not a site for inexperienced flyers.
Park off the narrow road at the bend at (approximate) map reference SJ148450. This is also one of the landing areas so park close to other vehicles. Do not attempt to drive vehicles up the ridge path.
From the bend by the car park, ascend directly to the nearest summit if the wind is south; or contour upward in a NE direction to the SE facing take-off areas south of the ridge path.
Takeoff and Top Landing
Take-off well away from the wire fence along the ridge-line. The absence of any significant flat area on the ridge summit precludes top landing though slope landing may be an option. There are reasonably level bottom landing areas below both the S and SE faces, including one adjacent to the car parking area. Avoid landing in the field to the west of the road.
Slope landing only
