Did you go right around to the north past the carpark and bus stops? That's what I should have done!
No. I went through the assembly area around the olive ground and then north up to the control. Talking to other people the way I went and you as well actually seemed like the best route choice.
I didn't take the northernmost route but the little path around the north side of the buildings, which involved too much doubling back :(
Looked like some epically good legs from what I saw, although it was hard to tell from the (low-resolution) map images posted on Facebook where all the gaps were (or weren't).
Defintely were some good route choices Blair!
Next time you'll know!!
