That was a fun day. Interesting how my “low save” in front of Arrowhead doesn’t look so low on the ayvri visualization, “lift desperation” must have amplified the feeling of being low.
At the start near Marshall above 5500′, I observed 10 mph wind from the NW. Also obvious from crabbing to the left while heading to Arrowhead. This may explain why Arrowhead did not produce the usual climb, since it became the tail end of a spine with respect to upper wind flow. For the rest of the flight, lift was found on the normal SW facing terrain spines.
Accomplishing distance with “for anyone” wings, regular harnesses, while keeping safe landing options… Maximum fun to stress ratio.
Thanks you Ladi for the convenient retrieve.
