Back to flying and over the pass

Classic post cold frontal day with superb visibility and strong climbs and good Cu development.
Very nice flyng in the valley, though we left it till later to go over the pass. I had crossed the valley, enjoying the conditions when I found that some of our group were already down towards Villafranca keen to go over the pass.
I met with Paul on the way, who had got a low save out of El Soto, then Paul and I crossed over the pass to the N, watching the others come in form the S side. Quite breezey on the other side, and initially weak thermals. Wouter landed S of the bend in the road a long way from the road, so Paul and I decided to land near the van to navigate back to him. As often happens, as soon as we decided go down we hit lift to 6m/s just about everywhere.
The evening flight gave mega lift, with the Cu not dying down till after sunset.
