Well, I would call it thermal? At least that is what I launched to search for.
As it turned out, with the strong wind aloft, I found an area of lift along an East West line, about two miles downwind from this ridge line.

Every time I did even one circle in this "lift" the Pulsar got blown downwind big time. So I had to go into reflex mode to fly upwind again.

maybe it was some ridge wave soaring?. I was more than 1000" AGL most of the time, so not really slope soaring.
