I had a good flight at the Pulpit. I stayed up for an hour and a half. Got up to 1600' above launch. Ridge lift was not very consistent and had to work broken lift lines to stay up.

I posted on the CHGPA site around 9:45 AM that I was headed out to the Pulpit. I ended up getting in a flight later in the afternoon. I launched after 3 into about 12 MPH wind. On my GPS I got wind from 16-20 MPG WNW to NW. Good consistent ridge lift made it easy to head south on the ridge. There was only mild turbulence and not much in the way of thermals. I stayed up for an hour and a half. There was some ice on the road up to launch when I got there but not a real problem. I did clear some ice off of the ramp steps. But not a real problem.
