The flight was just great, vario died but no problem, climbing to 2450m then crossing the valley onto the rocky cliffs, with patience and a lot of searching for the right lift up I went. Flying past the Crack where the base jumpers fly thought is pretty cool.

Then up, up and away I went, flying close the walls of rock searching for more rising air, bit by bit up I went but not quite breaking the summit. Flying around for 3 hours then over the lake a massive spiral left and right to stretch my lines.
