I'm curious - how much do you think you are improving at climbing/descending steps vs. learning that particular set of steps?

Hard to say. Sometimes I feel like I'm going down other steps quicker but other times not...

I think what I'm lacking the most is the part of the process in sprint orienteering where you come across the steps and virtually instantaneously have to decide on the strategy for getting down as quickly as possible which I'm not really practicing by doing the same steps. Nowhere around here with a high enough concentration of steps to do this (witch isn't embargoed!).

yeah, tricky to practice on lots of new steps I guess. are there any in Stirling old town? It's an interesting session though. takes a fair bit of concentration to throw yourself down steps!
