Mixed bag kind of a day that I thought was gonna be great throughout but turned out to be pretty challenging. Flew some with Brian Stevens (YS) and he put the Boundary Peak out and back idea in my head. Found some pretty good lift right off a 1200' AGL tow and the first hour or so was pretty good. The clouds weren't streeting very well into nice lines so had to do some major course deviations, but still good and I could connect them well enough. As I got closer to the S end of the Pinenuts I noticed some anvils forming somewhere west of Mono Lake that turned out to put some kinks into the 2nd half of the flight. Once I got near Mt. Patterson and Sweetwater every one of the clouds seemed to lie and I wasn't finding much besides sink. It sill wasn't a terribly high day, I got a bit low and there wasn't anywhere to land further S so I turned around N to keep Hilton Ranch well within glide range. I did end up running into decent lift a bit south of Hilton Ranch so turned back on course to Boundary Peak. As I got closer and closer to Boundary Peak the lift just got better and better. Turning around at Boundary Peak, there was blow up and rain shafts by Mono Lake, Mt Patterson and Hilton Ranch and the anvil I saw earlier was visibly spreading N and E. I ended up heading home quite a bit E and a bit past Walker Lake to avoid all of that. Walker Lake was blue, the clouds east of it didn't deliver a whole lot and the sky ahead north looked like some nasty combination of washed out air, overdevelopment and corpses of old cus well past their usefulness so I slowed down quite a bit to flatten my glide and hope for the best. I found nothing but unreliable and weak lift up until a bit E of Silver Springs that allowed me to get a decent climb up to a well safety margined final glide. I took a much higher climb than needed as I still needed to cross the Virginia Range to get home and there was rain shafts all over the Warm Springs valley so I had to prepare for hitting heavy sink. Fortunately I only hit small pockets of showers and bad sink on the way home and it wasn't as bad as I feared so got home with over 1000' of excess altitude.
