QOC Fountainhead Red. I was slow in the terrain, but didn't make many mistakes. I count that as a success. Why slow? Hard to say. Certainly tired and hungry after the first 90 minutes. Rugged terrain. Plus I was pretty happy about the flow of things and not in the mood to push harder.
It was drizzly and wet, but not too cold, actually pretty nice for late January. I left my glasses in the car. Had a little trouble with the fine map detail. I didn't know I was headed for a man-made object (a chimney) until it appeared in front of me, and then the same thing happened again a few controls later (another chimney). But I read contours well, and even the vegetation was good as mapped.
