|Trail toward 18; cut off to leftas start up hill, across saddle, could see flag from top
|Crossed hill low to NW to trail; followed trail to R bend in front of stone wall; ran to lower rock first
|NNE 250m to trail bend, trail around first knoll and around corner, then N to stone wall, follow to trail, then across on spur, up and under to the left.
|Headed downhill on compass, but feeling tentative. It was much further than I thought it would be. Kept stopping to check map. Finally hit stream 50 m SW of control and in
|Hard to get going through rocks. Could see big rock from a distance
|S on indistinct trail, cross over big trail near big rocks and up reentrant
|Maybe should have just dropped to trail. Kept contouring on side hill to SW. Crossed SW-NE trail thinking it was the NW-SE trail, and ran all the way down to stream. What a dope! Back up hill, landed on NW-SE trail N of control and followed it ESE for a while, then S across rocky reentrant and in
|On compass, but ended up to far downhill, where I could see the marsh below me. Just lost a couple of lines, though. Could see the big rocks ahead of me, so knew where I was. Passed Donna Fluegel, who had this control on green
|Up hill to trail junction. Took big trail SE across marsh, then angled S across steam bed to lesser trail, through rocky ground, then up to the top of the hill and beyond to boulder in the reentrant.
|Ran the ridgeline. Saw Lyn Walker on Green going the other way
|On compass. Saw the spur that had the cliff face, but then lost it again! Had to hunt a bit.
|Trail for a bit, then crossed S of marshy area, but N of stonewall fragment. Angled N to EW trail, then turned corner and angled in to the reentrant.
|Headed roughly SE to long rocky knoll, over the top and straight to it.
|Counting ridgelines, got to the right ridge, but a little too far SW and had to look a bit
|On compass, but lost attention for a bit and ended up checking all the cliffs to the SW before relocating on the small pond
|Down the spur S, got in reentrant just barely NE of control, but couldn't read it on the map, so I thought I was in the reentrant one over to the W, and that I had to climb the ridgeline. S, then N then S again along the ridgeline. All the way down S, up as far as #14. Finally found it in the reentrant. Like the billygoat. When I was looking for something on a hill, it's hard to look in the reentrants. I need more magnification!
|Pretty straight. I could see the spur developing from a distance.
|Could see the larger reentrant to the W and knew I had to climb up to find the small reentrant
