Comment

Bit of a slow start then great street on the Sierras followed by convergence up to Mt Grant. Joined up with 11W for the return trip, though we never really saw each other. Smoke W of Olancha looked pretty thick and i had the altitude to head down the Kern River valley to stay out of it and try working the west facing ridges. Found a little ridge generated bubbles, but not the one last big climb. Thought I had enough at the Walker Plateau, but hit more sink on the way to Jawbone canyon, so started the engine about 10 miles out instead of trying for a marginal straight in.
