I haven't sloped there for a few years, but judging from the Google maps photo, nothing has changed.

For Keswick, its a surprisingly good slope-soaring hill. On really windy days, we even resorted to taking the props off our 20 and 40 size planes and chucking them off the hill... They flew great!! LOL
