I have just come back from Notch Peak, UT.  It is one of just two or three legal cliffs that I know of suitable for wingsuit base jumping in the USA.  It was a special trip.  With a snow storm up high on the mountain when we launched from winter and flew into summer 3000 plus feet below.  Notch is a cool place and its large NW limestone wall is in powerful canyon.  There is nothing like desert air after a storm, and we did not see another human in the 6 nights we camped and hiked, no cell service, no internet.  The place is fascinating with an abrupt transition from granite to sedimentary/ limestone rock.

 

Lots of bolted crags near the campsite for fun when windy.  I attached a photo, well, several, in the first, you can see our campsite in the bottom left corner, and Notch Peak's North face, in the top right. Another of Julian standing up top with the Exum Guides that you provided for us.  He is an icon, it is cool that he is enthused his new shoes, he is one of those guys that will wear them until they are completely finished.

Thanks Five Ten!
