Over the pass

After 2 days of non flying due to storms today finally came good. We started at launch with base only just above take off. The plan was to hang around on the big spine untill things improved, but we were too impatient and were soon gliding off the end at Corrals with not much more than take off height. I managed a strong climb out past the quarry on the road. Dougal also managed a climb, whilst Arnie and Cristoph missed the climb. Dougal and I went over the pass, only to land in the blue and quite strong wind in the suppressed air just after the pass. 4km downwind a big cloudscape was waiting. Oh well. Tomorrow!
A very good evening flight with climbs to 2800m.
