Glad you enjoyed it!
I couldn't figure out a way to keep the climb low with more criss-crossing. If the Salty Dog wasn't tomorrow, I would have had a lot more criss-crossing. At one point I had #7 to the west of where it was in the private property, but couldn't figure out who the landowner of that chunk of land was or how to contact them. If we come back out here next year, we should try and figure it out. This would have gotten rid of at least a couple of the mostly trail running legs, since I would have been able to send #9 back to the west side of the road again.
In terms of the size of the mapped area, up the bank to the east is just more and more up, but to the South there is a second bench which should be quite similar to the northern bench, it's just quite a bit smaller. If I have time later in June, I'll go back and map that chunk, it'll only take a day or two, but right now MacPherson takes precedence.
Yeah, more criss-crossing would have added climb. I, among others, appreciated not having excess climb with Salty Dog the next day. Thoughts for the next event there.
