O - competition race (LittleTruckee Summit) 38:10  3.6 km (10:36 / km)
Middle green course. Open alpine forest, no underbrush. Ran in running shorts. Features were boulders, small clearings in the open forest (hard to find), and some shallow reentrants.
Had trouble on 4, buried in some big rocks at the top of a hill, scrambled around poor footing looking unsuccessfully until I saw it was a couple contours off the top. So took the plunge over the edge and looked further down, finding it with 4 min wasted.
Then ran a good line to 6, but I think the boulder was slightly off to the R, while I stopped and looked L. Another minute gone until I found the very short 1m boulder.
Finally, on 9 saw the control from a long way off and ran hard right to it, except my pace count ran out before I reached it. So stopped and saw mine back a bit and off the line just a little. Ran back and got it, but maybe a min there, too.
They weren't posting results, because the printer ran out of ink, so don't know how I did. But can't be pretty with 6 min of errors. G got me by 30 sec, don't know about anyone else.
Got to adapt to this terrain and it's characteristic features, particularly reading the openings in the thin forest.
