Comment

The bottom of the rotor was easily reachable from a winch launch, and there was plenty of moisture forecast in the atmosphere so the wave was clearly marked.

I initially climbed in the wave off the Old Man, then transitioned over to the wave on the Dunstans at too low of a height (below the tops) and got the absolute shit kicked out of me in the rotor. The back headrest and the entire contents of the luggage compartment were ejected onto the back seat, but fortunately did not block the rear stick. I returned to the Old Man to recover my height, then swung back for another assault on the Dunstans, this time arriving high enough to encounter the smooth air of the wave. Afterwards there was one wave bar to duck underneath, then I went down to Roxburgh and back.
