That certainly looked a lot tougher than Grafton :-).

Hadn't thought of the wet rock as a factor. Piecing together bits of bare rock is just about the only way to get through medium green bits of Kooyoora (or Kangaroo Crossing) at any sort of speed, so if you can't do that then I can see how the area would get a lot slower.

I think we're probably at the stage now where the medium green is more or less unusable, except as an ingredient in route choice legs which give you options to avoid it if you're prepared to go wide enough.

Dark green = fight
Light green = possibly fight
White = light green in any varnish wattle areas
Yellow = open
Grey = open unless moss is wet

Overall, I think it is still a very usable and enjoyable area. I think the fact we are all getting a bit older is part of the issue that Neil describes. The medium green has been just as un-runnable since WMOC, but mostly the courses have avoided this. I know I certainly tried to when I set courses. Just on Sunday, there were several legs with no choice but to crash through it.

I'm a bit sorry to have missed the weekend, because it does sound as though it would have been a good challenge in parts (and bloody horrible in others). BTW, Mt Korong may be fun, but it doesn't lend itself so well to route choice legs. Also it doesn't have Melville Caves, Crystal Mine or Mt Kooyoora.

Mapping the other half may solve the route choice issue. But may introduce some of those Koyoora green issues. The view from the top is quite good. And it has better rock climbing.
