HVO-WCOC training series #3 at Westmoreland Nature Sanctuary on our way home from NYC. Green course. Barely any remaining snow. Some good legs, but some clunkers, too. Stopped short on #1 examining cliffs way too soon, but kept going until things made sense. Headed east at first going to 2 because I was following the line from 7 to 2. Figured it out when I was almost to the stream, then fine from there. 3 was fine, saw the reentrant developing. 4 was fine, spur was obvious, saw the flag from 100 m. 5 also easy enough, but I screwed up the approach. Thought it would be easier to climb one reentrant further N and cut over the top, but missed too high and had to puzzle it out. 6 should have been easy, except I talked myself into going up the reentrant to the left and having to cut over. 7 easy, saw from about 50m or so. Easy navigation to 8, but a lot of side hill climbing the way I went. 9 was easy, saw the flag from at least 125 M, just had to climb to it. 10 was bad. No trouble finding it, but somehow thought it was good to go up the trail to the east and climb up to it. Nope. The climb was awful, very steep, muddy, lots of blackberry canes. Finally got up there and after I left saw that I had no map, so had to down climb a ways to where I had dropped it, and then banged my forehead in a rock next time up. Map recovery alone took 3:12. 11 I was a little tired and dispirited, a little trouble reading the area, went by and had to go back. 12 was fine, just slow, using pretty sold features and right to it.
