Blue thermal day with lift going up to about 12k early and 14k later and 10-20 knots of westerly winds aloft. Released low on the way to the Dogskins into lift that wasn't really working and had to save it from about 800' AGL which got me a few hundred feet which was just enough to head to the Red Rocks where I found the first usable lift. Heading to the Wassuk Range wasn't bad, once I got there the lift become really broken up though. Heading W towards Alpine County the lift ended up getting significantly higher. After rounding Alpine County and getting a good high climb shortly thereafter I was hoping the Pinenuts would make a long glide home easy but all I found was sink. Got down to about 8k a bit W of Silver Springs before I got my final climb. I did end up making a triangle, although the one I got was a little oblong. I was thinking perhaps I should have turned S. Lake Tahoe instead of Alpine County as my final turnpoint to make the triangle more FAIish.
