What did you think of them (asks a curious course consultant, who did all his work from afar, without setting foot in the terrain)?

I thought they were great! Lots of mediumish compassy legs and some nice ~1k ones too. In particular I thought 4-5 on the first day was a really well-set, challenging leg. Other faves were 5-6, 11-12,17-18. On the second day I liked 2-3, 17-18, 22-23.

The terrain isn't super technical but the drainage system of ditches and small reentrants can be tricky, especially in the greener areas where visibility is reduced. Also there are basically zero point features on the entire map, so you're relying on compass, contours (which are 3m so subtler than usual), and occasionally vegetation.
