PB for Anton to Avila. Light N 3600m+

A great day with base over 3600m in the flats towards the end of the day with Cu forming only over the high mountains around 4200m.  Conditons in the valley were uncharacteristically weak early on, claiming a few early bomb outs.  Anton, Mike, Nigel and myself went over the pass flying into a light headwind (NE-SE).  AlthoughI wanted to fly back around Muñana, Anton pushed on for his PB.  Mike likewise didnt fancy going back over the pass.  After Mike landed near the Y junction near Avila, Nigel an I too a big climb and flew back towards Piedrahita, now with a bit of a tailwind.  We got down early though so that we could get the other guys up for an evening flight.
