S&C 1:00:00 [3]

Multi pitch rock climb below passo rolle, with beardy mike, 7 pitches, I led 3, amazing rock. All done in 3 hours! Extremely high quality granite. V pleasing & fun! Certainly took my mind off the fact I’m not feeling too great.
3 PM

Orienteering 1:00:00 [3]
shoes: VJ Integrators

Had bought a training map of passo rolle so wandered into the area to try the 3km “.difficult” course. Was incredibly tough & many flags were either not there anymore, or I couldn’t find them. Had to walk most of it- v tough & unrunnable with much windfall.

Orienteering race 46:12 [5] 4.5 km (10:16 / km) +130m 8:58 / km
shoes: VJ Integrators

Primiero O week final day- middle- val canali, rather than spend €25 on a 3.7km course I borrowed Jason Hayman’s map & ran that, sneakily starting one forest road higher which meant horrific bush whacking thru felled crap as a warmup - 150m climb?

Course/area grim- steep, teetery slopes & mincing descents or v steep climbs- my least favourite. Struggled to read detail on map esp. at 10 & 11. Terrible time, over 50% slower than M 16 winner, but I was pooped from yesterday & lost a lot on no 11- as did Jason.

I need a rest......

10 AM

Climbing (Via ferrata ) 3:00:00 [4] 5.0 km (36:00 / km) +1150m 16:45 / km

Hard steep via ferrata above san martino, rather than the option of more orienteering on the same map at €25 as yesterday. Took a bit of a beasting- foot/toe now sore. Write up on strava.....

Hope I’ve not done any damage to my foot/toe, or (gulp) my health....... we shall see.

Orienteering race 1:02:18 [5] 7.71 km (8:05 / km) +350m 6:35 / km
shoes: Innov8 MudClaw 300 2019

Italian Primiero O week day 1, direct difficult, 6.8k/350m, altitude 2100-2300m. Open area, reminded me of Holme fell in the lakes, but vast. Had a v good run helped by Bryan Keely starting 2 mins after me. Held him off until no 10? , he made 2 small errors but then got away as I overshot no 12.

Then on happily enjoying the map & terrain; I’m clearly acclimated to some degree from last week.

Good to meet Big Jon afterwards & have a good chat. Really pleased to hear JenR is making progress.

At €25 I think I’ll miss tomorrow & do something else. 2nd today, equal best run of the trip to date?

Orienteering race 34:20 [4] 4.3 km (7:59 / km) +120m 7:00 / km
shoes: VJ Integrators

Primiero O week - Prologue day 2 tho i missed day 1. EOD Direct entry Difficult, 3.7km (!), 150m, 1:10000. Miss at no 1 as overcompensating for the scale, had been told 1:75000.

Really enjoyable from there, only big cock up no 16 where i difted down to a huge impassable hill/crag, and stupidly, climbed it. control was tricky but got luckyin circle, given away by a W21E.

PLeasing time, 3:25 down on Natlia Gemperle, and 3rd when I left.
