orienteering 44:11  5.2 km (8:30 / km) +190m 7:11 / km
British Middles, Chinley Churn. OK area for a level B event, not really suitable for a British Middles.
I lost about 15 seconds at #3, come up just beyond the control and didn't see it to my right until I had stopped and pondered the map and the control below me in a re--entrant. Could have got a better line on #7, I followed the elephant track into the rocks when it was easier going a bit lower down the slope. Could also have got a better line on #8 apparently. I just went straight up the hill to the path junction but it was very steep. A more circuitous route might have saved me 20 seconds or so. The section through the quarries was not very interesting, basically running along an elephant track parallel to the crags and the controls were easy. Then it was out onto the moor for a burn-up, helped a little by Roger pulling away from me over the first few before he disappeared out of sight. Very easy orienteering, nothing to trouble the brain very much.
