Map/area: Skriverberget
Organiser: Haslum
Distance: 5.13 km
Time: 44:22
About 30 degrees hot, I wilted after hitting the logged areas after the 2nd control:

Very good to #1 & #2, high speed and perfect orienteering.

The open yellow uphill to #3 was convered with nearly man-high bush, locking in the heat from the sun, then the forest was a lot denser than expected when I left the path, but I should have had a compass direction as well. Lost 40 sec.

The map around #4 is quite bad, with serious cliffs missing and the control cliff was probably very close to the SE edge of the circle.

I now believe that the somewhat misplaced #4 caused me to also miss #5, i.e. I was lower in the hillside than the course indicated, so when I turned left to find the dotted blue line marsh I instead ended up too low and too far north. I should have used my compass here as well! Over 2 min lost.

Managed to concentrate for the next few controls, 6-9, but after hitting the path system to #10 I mentally relaxed and ended up on the wrong path in the overgrown logged area and lost another 40+ seconds.

It is really amazing how much the bushy vegetation has grown over the last year or two, this map was new in 2017 but it already needs serious updates for most of the logged areas!
