Running shape not too bad in this terrain, but way too much time loss:
Just running to #1 and up the hill to #2, but when I got up there (running on a path, but obviously not the mapped one), the control hill never turned up and the vegetation was denser than expected. Lost about 10 s from this hesitation.
Ran as planned almost all the way to #3 but then I took the wrong path and ended up in the steep rocky hill-side. After I figured out where I had ended up it still took some time to get to the control, I lost 45-50s here.
At this point I should have turned back 180 degrees and gone around the hill to #4, climbing all the way over the top and back down cost me another 15 s probably.
At this point I started running better for a while, OK routes and execution to #5, 6, 7, 8 & 9, but then I made the same mistake as many others, finding an unmapped path from the clearing (which is now much smaller tha mapped) which lead me down to #11 instead of 10: I punched there and went on up the hill, finally figuring out what I'd done when I ended up in the saddle point! This mistake cost me at least 1:30.
Fast back to #11 for the second time, then another split win to #12 before I went on to lose a few seconds on each of the final controls.
#17 had really bad mapping around the building, I ran a "shortcut" on the paved platform in front of the south face but had to turn back when this route ended in a cul-de-sac.
The last control was almost certainly located on a big tree in the corner of the clipped-out area, but it was very visible from the previous control so probably nobody lost any time here.
