Yes. Control 11 was misplaced by about 150m. It was on tree near the bicycle path instead of at the foot of the rockface near the creek. After punching the control I ran back down to the creek to find Mason and tell him not to bother looking in the correct location.
Maybe it was a previous version of the course and the control placement map was different to the final competition version?
The other possibility is the ranger came and moved the control as the word was he didn't like people going into dangerous areas and hadn't been told by Head Office about the event permit.
Some of the early starters appeared to find the control at the correct location on LiveLox, so maybe it was moved by someone!

It must have been moved - while I can't be 100% certain it was on exactly the right cliff (when you hit the control you don't ask too many questions), it certainly wasn't where you describe when I went through earlier.

Warwick confirmed that the control had in fact been moved by the ranger.
