11,000ft, WSW PBs for Simon and Chris



Section to Segovia

Our wind at PN is crossed at 9am so is very likely to come on the hill. Lower level winds are reasonabe, but stronger winds likely as thermals mix down upper level winds. Blue thermal tops at 11.000ft with max temp of 28ºC. With temp at 30ºC some possible isolated congestus build up. Approach of another cold front tonight thrown from the depression over the UK.

What Happened?

I went about an hour earlier than the group and had a hard time staying up.  Afte it got good most had a relativeluy easy ride to near 2600m.  A relatively easy Pass crossing, and Simon, Alan,Rob, James, jon and myself doing so.  Not much on the other side, with banks of cirrostratus blocking sunshine occationally.  Only Simon and myself pulled a climb from near Blacha.  We made Avila for a PB for Simon.  Chris also had a more modest PB to the Cemetery after a good run on his new Rise.
