Cori gets a ten on the launch =D> due to more air time before landing.
Looks like a great day had by all.

Thanks! Lots of airtime! Good times! There's a 59" gap on Spanish Needle, that was our original plan. I had a torn rotator cuff when I climbed it, so couldn't do the leap. Need to get up there to do it.

I am guessing Spanish Needle may have received a few more inches of snow with this last storm, the Tehachapi area got a bit on Sunday.
