With the details of the Tatitna crash emerging it got me thinking of how difficult that particular strip can be on a windy day. With the winds meeting from the two separate valleys it can really be tricky. Drop below the trees to slow with not enough aileron/rudder authority and the strip gets narrow very quickly. The stories of crashes and bent plane parts around the strip reinforce my opinion.
About 95% of my landings (not including my home base) are off airport. So usually if I am landing at anyplace listed in the supplement I consider it to be a fairly easy trip. That is not always the case. Two places in particular require a lot of concentration every time I land even though they are plenty long and wide. Those are Rohn/Tatitna and Whittier. On calm days or just looking at the supplement these strips do not look difficult at all, especially in a Cub. However you add wind (which is almost always prevalent in these two locations) and reality of landing there is much, much more difficult than one would think from looking at the supplement.
My intent on this thread is too help pilots who are inexperienced or have never gone into particular strips. Just because something looks easy on paper does not mean it is when you arrive. So please share some other recognized or supplement identified strips that you find to be challenging. Maybe by sharing information we can prevent an accident.
