I don't think round to the path to the second last was good - you drop a lot of height, and have a big climb back up! Graeme did that. Peter contoured and nailed it, but I prefer pretty straight.
Ok you should know. I hedged my bets by contouring and gradually climbing with a view to bailing out to the top of the hill if it got too grotty. In the end i didn't quite get as high as the top of the hill but still had to drop into the control. It didn't feel quick but i guess no other route did either.
