Hinchcliffe's is an excellent thermic site with great XC potential but it is not ridge soarable so it's less likely to be able to ridge soar and wait for a thermal to come through as is the case on Beechmont. Hinchies is flyable in winds E through S although the launch only faces E and flying there in a South wind will require launching in lee side rotor. The south face works best on winter afternoons when there is a S katabatic wind and can make for some beautiful sunset ridge soaring.

CTA: above 6500ft, steps to 8500ft behind launch.
