4000m day. O&R over Pass and back and Avila goals.

Another big conditions day with very strong climbs to 4000m and light winds allowing a variety of XC options.  Jorg probably the best with a flight to near Sotalvo castle south of Avila and back to Villafranca.  Tin Tin and Stu in Avila and others spread around the Avila and Piedrahita Valley.  I had one of my best heights of the year in the Avila valley on the southern mountains allowing me a quick transit back towards the pass and back to the home valley.  Long range forecast looking good.  Looks like it is going to be a great August as was July.

Conditions looking similar today.  More detail at 11am briefing.
