Green course at Norwottuck in MA. FR logged about 6.627 km. A bit too far right at 8, but figured out the cliffs (and the mislabeled description--the location was obvious from the control circle). Then unmapped trails and rocks/cliffs near 9 (saw Dean and Bob and I think BP in the woods here but they were no help. :-) )
Decided to do the notch just east of the power line to get around the hill to 10 saving 3 contours from the trail route; sidehilling wasn't too much fun, though, but didn't last too long. Last bit an uphill slog, but it had to be done. Nice course by Ian S, and gorgeous weather, sunny and upper 50s.
EDIT: Found out later that the power line vegetation wasn't as crappy as it looked; someone else went that way and had only about 5' of nasty stuff to blast through, and it was much less climb (down along the edge of the quarry, instead of my way, hanging off the side of the hill).
