Comment

Declared and completed 537km FAI triangle, Dill Hill / Taboose Pass / Porter Peak / Dill Hill.
Started by pulling the yellow handle too early, a poor choice at 1300' full of water.
Eventually climbed out with two golden eagles over the old "Bear Back" paraglider launch.
Not bad once on track. But should have followed the clouds. Eventually got to them for a while at Olancha, but back on the rocks N of Mt. Langley. Once again there were hikers on Langley and of course on Whitney.
Managed to get a climb at Taboose. Then over to Mazourka on the Inyos, which was working nicely.
A good run down the Inyos. Light rain at Cerro Gordo, then heavy rain E of Darwin.
Telescope Peak was OD'd. Crossed to just N of Porter peak, then through a bit more rain before Trona.
Cleared through R2505 by Joshua above 10,000', which lined up a good run home.
