Sorry ass day. Strong SW winds made the thermals really, really uneven. I don't think I had any climbs where there wasn't a large part of the circle in sink. I had tons of failed tries and turning into gusts and bursts of lift that amounted to next to nothing. There were a few sparse cus further S, but I never made it that so my entire flight was blue. Not terrible high as I barely peaked my head over 13k. Later in the day there was large patches of thick cirrus putting a lot of the terrain in shadow. Lots of consistent sink in places. It took me quite a while to get enough altitude to leave the comfort of Pond Peak and out of the Warms Springs Valley, I even turned back briefly. The Pinenuts were working weaker than usual. Ended up turning Bald Mountain at the S end of the Pinenuts and retiring early. A strong tailwind did make final glide the only easy part of the day. I'm planning on flying the next 2 days, so hopefully I'll redeem myself.
