UP Meru

Did not log the flight until more than a year later, so the details are fuzzy. Recollect being far in the lead and opted to go low stress up the valley rather than tangling with the foothills in the wind, but fizzled in Piru only to watch a parade of pilots fly by later, including pilots on "B" rated (lower performance) gliders .
