Exactly.
I'm curious, does the FAA clear tour operators to loiter inside the curve in a single?
If not, then a donk stop would indeed be more forgiving in that the availability to choose your LZ would increase.
The pictures suggest that once committed, the hostile terrain would exacerbate a roll over etc.
Interesting to hear from a tour pilot in this area and what their rules are regarding hostile terrain?
