Race Evaluation

BAOC Indian Valley: Red

ebone

1. Bad distance judgement
Hesitated
+00:10
Stopped short. Expected to see the control sooner as I came down the reentrant, because I misjudged the distance.
2.
3.
4.
5. Bad map reading
Confused parallel features
Hesitated
+00:20
Stopped and looked around in the clearing higher up on the spur.
6.
7. Did not like map
+00:15
Used cliff on same contour in reentrant as my attackpoint, but I ended up significantly too high, so I think the map is wrong. The boulder was invisible from above--basically it was a tiny cliff.
8.
9. Did not like map
+00:10
I had to stay a lot farther left than I expected to stay out of the green--clearly mismapped. I didn't hesitate too long though and mostly kept moving okay.
10. Hesitated
Unused to map
+00:10
Stopped right before the control, because I didn't see the feature. I should have known at this point in the course that rock features are invisible from any distance on this map.
11. Lacked confidence
Hesitated
+00:10
I stopped just above the control, because I expected to see either a marker or something that looked more like a cliff. I still wasn't getting the map--pretty dense of me--must be mentally tired, maybe from so much driving in the last couple of days.
12. Bad map reading
Bad compass work
Hesitated
+01:00
Stopped on the spur before the control. I was 75 meters farther to the right on the spur than I thought I was, so nothing made sense when I looked down into the reentrant ahead of me for the control. I saw neither rock nor marker. I inched forward anyway and finally saw the big cliffs and scree slope above the control.
13.
14. Bad map reading
Bad compass work
Disturbed by others
+00:30
I went very far to the left, crossing the fence and climbing an extra one or two contours en route to the trail. I did this because I was trying to run away from Rex Winterbottom, who was right behind me going into control 13. As a result, he almost overtook me at #14 but made a small miss going in.
15. Bad compass work
Disturbed by others
+00:20
Again, I got careless because Rex was behind me, and I ran off down the hill without being careful enough with my compass. I swooped too far to the right, then eased to a jog, scoped things out, and corrected.
16. Bad map reading
Hesitated
Unused to map
+00:10
Stopped on the road, because the large, paved walkways were mapped as small trails, despite being similar in appearance to the road that they joined. Also, I was confused not to see the flowing stream on the map; it was shown as a deep erosion gully (thick brown line).
