Gumble Pinnacles, west of Orange. An another average run, although I was initially surprised at how far behind the winner (O-ing again - well done!) I was. Analysis of my run however showed a number of errors and led to me being almost 18 minutes behind in 5th place.
A small error at 2 (1 min), then I made a 5 minutes error on the first long leg to 5. Stopped short on 10 (another 2 mins), a little low on 2nd long leg at 11 (1 min) but happy with the route choice. Then came the blowout on the last 2: 5 minutes in total on 2 straight forward controls due to a bad loss of concentration and not checking my compass. I would have been happy with the 54 minutes an error free run would have given me!!
