What does this mean?

Map / Terrain

Scale 1:7500 and 5 m contours.

Map last updated in year TBD.

The map will be size A4 and printed on waterproof paper.

The area is on a steep wooded slope with many crags and rocky areas, and as a result the course lengths are on the short side. The short course has been planned to keep the climb to a minimum and avoid the steepest rockiest ground. The yellow course will follow paths, ruined walls and streams. It also includes a short marked route.

Short 2.8 km 190 m climb 13 controls

Orange 2.2 km 205 m climb 10 controls
