Doing a good job visualising the map and found most of the tapes straight away where I was expecting them. But maybe contours need a bit of work in the section between 1 and 3. Things took a turn for the worse after 9 when reached a distinct point where stopped being able to reconcile the map - and spent a while going around relocating, and succeeding backwards but not forwards - turns out I was trying to fit against an identical combination of features to the ones I thought I was. Went up to some double tapes that clearly weren't 10 but never twigged was 5 - so bailed out and restarted (with no difficulty) half way between 10 and 11.

Much better. Found everything quite quickly - and sooner than I believed so for a few I was quite sceptical that I was in the right place and did some validations, then continued on with caution. Did get distracted by another tape by 14 - but confirmed it wasn't mine and relocated quickly.

With rickyp. Quite a good exercise given rickyp got himself lost in trying to get me lost. Got my revenge by being quite sneaky back to him and tricked him with an induced 90 degree error. To be honest, features close to the controls was a bit too strong to make difficult without going significantly out of the way. Good fun.
Relay - 13:10 1.20km, 60m ascent
Went out 2nd, which I think was a mistake. Didn't believe that the rest of the team had actually been to 1 without me seeing (despite them saying between them they did) so went out at the end just for the sake of getting some distance in. Time includes a lot of stopping and waiting.
Thanks to Mark, Alice, Meg, Ben and others for a great weekend!
