Mitch's Narrative Copied from the SBSA Chat Box

... my flight yesterday. Its a line I've been studying for a couple of years now, after climbing to 7,700ft over La Cumbre I knew I had to try it.  Of interesting note is my way back into the wind on the front range.  It was an especially difficult section.  Flying lines like this one is not for the faint of heart, unprepared, or uncommitted.  A multiple day, dehydrated, hike out would have awaited me had I landed back there.
