Nice course by George W to get us around Hurd SP again. Nice day, too, sunny and low 50s with breeze and occasional gusts which had me just a tad worried about falling branches. SL, 5.1 km, on a 1:10000/5m map
1 was I think on a different boulder than the circled one, but visible from where it should have been... Fairly straight to 2-3-4, then decided for some reason to swing by 2 on the way to 5. I got too far down the hill and west, then had to climb back up. Along the way I saw what I thought was an unmarked mine (see next entry), not far from the E-W trail that goes by the others, but it's there west of the line (north of the purple dot), just really hard to see. That cost me as I had to climb several more contours than I intended to.
Slow to find the flag at 9 not knowing where on the cliff it was. More veg than I expected to 10, and it might have been faster to use the trail to 11 (I stayed east of the barberry/vertical green, below the steep hillside until it got less steep. Other "errors" marked by AP are basically because I'm very slow on climbs (12-finish). At least I never got too lost; 5 was my biggest boo-boo.

To check out another mine (shown on the map with a boulder and a boulder cluster) that I went by on the way from 4-5. It confused me enough I tried to figure out the trails rather than just keeping on the line on my green course.
