Description

Chalk Bluffs in Bishop, CA is a lesser-known paragliding site in the Eastern Sierras. It offers ridge soaring opportunities, though it doesn't see the most consistent flying conditions. The site is occasionally used and is not suitable for beginners due to its rocky, uneven terrain and potential for turbulence. Located at the northern end of Owens Valley, Chalk Bluffs can be accessed by taking the 395 North from Bishop, then turning onto the 6, followed by Five Bridges Road, and finally Casa Diablo Road. The launch area is unmarked but can be found at the end of a dirt road dotted with campsites. Launching here requires careful preparation due to the rocky terrain and the need for steady winds. The site can experience extreme air conditions, high winds, and turbulence, so it's crucial to choose launch times wisely. Evening flights are often preferred. While flying, be cautious of rotor behind the ridge and venturi effects through narrow canyons. Top landing is possible if you have sufficient height to avoid rotor, with several clear areas available for landing. If top landing isn't an option, the base of the cliff offers alternative landing zones, though obstacles like barbed wire fences, trees, and a river must be considered.
