Has anyone ground launched Mingus Mountain?

Recommended Posts

I'll start off by saying I have never ground launched (intentionally). :P

In recent years the Mingus hang glider launch site has been improved and can now accommodate Paragliders and we see them quite often. As for a ground launched canopy, I would be most concerned with a suitable landing area. The mountain is covered with thick manzanita and other brush. There are several two track roads criss-crossing the mountain, however.

Are you local?
