Wrist-based HR be wildin'. I ran at about 90% effort.
Overall, I really struggled to visualize the rocks and cliffs. It's not that I couldn't read them, I just kept imagining what they look like before I ran there and I was always wrong. Even on the slow march up to 15 when I had time to really dig into it, I struggled to match what I saw on the map with what I saw in the forest. They were mapped really well, it was just tough for me. Compass work was better but still not great, outran myself a few times, but also minimized a few mistakes.
Interesting first control.
I knew I was NW on 2 and contoured too late.
I outran myself a little on 5 trying to be clever.
Greg was so much quicker at correcting the mistake at 6.
Didn't think my compass was that bad on 8, but it really was.
Good mistake correction at 9.
Maybe I was seeing things but I could've sworn I saw a reentrant where I turned WNW going to 13 (near 19). Realized the mistake when I saw the cliffs N of me.
Actually didn't know I ran right past 14 until writing this. Slowed down when I should've, but I also should've turned around instead of slowing.
