I am never really sure what the best way to approach score courses like this is - especially with the added complication of only being allowed to collect controls in ascending 10s order.
As 112 was near the start, I decided to collect a few 10s heading towards Broomfield Hill before switching to 20s when it seemed sensible. This led me via 111 and 114 to 118 before heading to 124. With hindsight 124 should be easy - the dark green vegetation was obvious, but only after I had mistaken lesser vegetation and went off course losing a few precious minutes. Out on the hot hillside, I grabbed 128 and headed down to 125 - my navigation was fine, but I choose a poor lengthy route to 120, again wasting time, before sticking with 20s to 123 and 121.
By now I was well over half time - I grabbed 137 before the long and tiring run to 134 (thankfully easy to glimpse from the path). 131 should have been easier, but rather than taking the (now) obvious open area between the vegetation, I choose to fight through the vegetation along the earth bank. I continued along the path around to 132 and pushed through to 145. Now out of time, I hit the hill… it was a slog up to the assembly area before sweeping around via 143 and the slightly scary run down to the finish… 5:13 late
Looking back, I think heading across the road was a red herring for me - ultimately only giving me 70 points for quite a bit of time and effort. I suspect I should have also switched to 30s and 40s sooner as well (and come in on time!)
Still it was a fun puzzle to try and work out and it was lovely to be out orienteering again!
