Scottish Champs - Craig A Barnes.
Wanted to do this in case of another lockdown, but not feeling very bright before the start.
First loop through the moor clean but slow. Steady into the woods & spiked #6. Bashed through the fight, track run & climb the hill to #7. Came out well south of the control, and thought it was my error. However control been removed from course as being in the wrong place.
Climbed & skirted green on start of leg to #8, but never seemed to find good lines across the slope. At one point had to crawl on hands & knees for 15m! Turns out there were some trods higher up the slope. Eventually emerged bang on the crag to spike the control but very slow through the green.
#9 ok, #10 managed to stand on top of the crag without seeing the flag. Rest in the white block ok.
Long leg to #15 shows how slow I was "running". Caught by Ian Davidson here, but was awake enough to get better line to #16 (by 1 min) to beat him to finish.
Tough day out followed by 4hour drive back. Knackered.
