Not of much of anything day physically but got to O maps mess in basement (in tidiness is power, that explains certain failings), looked over O-Ringen maps from last month, looked at running logs from late 70s & early 80s, incl. fieldwork notes for Upton winter '79-80. Found a diary re O-Ringen/WMOC '83 Finland trip with letters from Beth sent to the event center to me, an H35A.... Once upon a time, one supposes.
Hardest leg of the 5 days
Could not get a grip on yellow/open so just kept climbing on compass. Crossed biggest stony ground to L of line about 40% of the way to cp, then crossed flat yellow with just general sense of location until seeing the V-shaped cliff about 60% of the way, finally something definite. Then small knolls to right, more stony ground gradually descending, then a bit more doubt as I wasn't seeing the obvious cliffs to L & R of line. Finally, the last RF w/ boulder on straightline, just outside circle and rest was straightforward. 12:04 for the leg & finally certainty with about a minute remaining. 4 to 5 was more in control.
