NSW Middle Champs "Pine Tree"
Open native forest with a LOT of granite.
Great fun, but a mistake riddled run. Lots of people out making mistakes, so finding controls was mostly not too hard.
May revise this after looking at the LiveLox, but:
#1 Can't remember, but ran to the group of rocks
#2 A bit of a soft route round to left of spur, but it avoided a lot of rock
#3 Drifted too far right (25s)
#4 Lost time here too - too far right again
#6 Brain fart, picked out the thicket, went round the bottom, then dropped 3 contours instead of 1 (1:41)
#7 Lost contact en route, spotted big tor, then regained contact just in time.
#8 Was on course for control, then decided I was on wrong line of rock (old eyes) and dropped down then back up. (1:00)
#9/#10 Catching Stix
#11 Pretty good leg, did climb early then v rough contouring, but still felt lucky to spike control
#13 How did I mess this up ? (1:14)
#18 Good leg, but hesitant to commit to control, boulders so big you don't want to waste 40s running round one.
Smashed by M20 and Jock, M50 was pretty scratchy today.
