I was amazed at how "easy" the bracken was - it looked monstrous but wasn't too much of an impediment to progress - I guess it has grown tall but hasn't unfurled the fronds yet. Once they grow and interlock it will get a whole lot worse...
A great session for the group - Josh, Ewan Mc, JoeW and Luke G. Plenty of subtle route choice (and some bigger ones -eg 1!) and the baffling helped keep things honest. Downhill overall helped a lot on this area, great planning by Sarah.

Yeah agreed, worst thing was trying to see things through the bracken! And yep, a great course too, thanks for letting me join in. Happily admit that I must have found the wrong boulder at 13.

There was a very clear boulder on the northern of the two veg changes. I ran to it and hesitated and then went south across the brushings to the higher boulder on south veg boundary. If you can send your trace to Keith Roberts it will help with his O-traks software development...

Should already be there, and it doesn't look good for me ;) but then again I definitely hit 1 and 2 fine, even if my track doesn't show it.
