Mixed feeling about this one. Rocky Ridge is super tricky. Tried to use the water as attackpoints but it was so dry this wasn't really effective. Generally ran really well up until the control circle. Toilet paper would have been better then the orange ribbons. You can't be colour deficient to white, and no pickup necessary. About 11 minutes of error related to this. Almost spiked #6 but hit the area underneath 'E' and couldn't re-orient. All together a great training, somewhat frustrated I couldn't do it justice.

This one went much better all though I was mad that I botched the last control. The cloud completely obstructed the ridge before the control and I wasn't confident enough to run to the top in fear that I had missed the orange ribbon. Then when I finally got to the top I couldn't see the ribbon anyway. Had to bounce off the trail. Between the subtle terrain and the cloud it was very difficult to precision orienteer. On the plus side, most of this one went really well. Map to come later.
