Facing east the main takeoff launches you high above the town of Roldanillo. The mountains around takeoff have very reliable house thermals but do have a possible pacific wind that comes in, so takeoff will be earlier in the day.
“Anserma” is our backup takeoff, we use it in the case of a northerly flowing wind, as it gives more options for distance to the south. This launch is more sheltered, thus it can be used later in the day. It is a bus journey to the town and transport up the hill in the infamous Willys jeeps to get to the takeoff site.
