You may be right about #5, but you have to be careful to avoid being stuck in the green west of the smaller clearing, have to go just north of that.
Thanks for the pickup!
Or whatever Alex was doing was probably right!
Upd: he was on Green though, I forgot that.
Well Alex was relatively quick on 54-55 either way, so whatever his route was must have been solid.
When I did it (sort of) for pickup, and I came from the clearing and entered the woods at that rocky reentrant (also has a big downed tree) just NE of the circle, which seemed to work well.
