TOC 2023 - Control picking, Arenas Negras

TOC 2023 - Control picking, Arenas Negras

Physically easier course mostly in downhill but with a lot of technical challenges with short legs and hard control points. Terrain type changes really fast so it is important to be able to adapt orienteering technique to the current challenges. 1,5km to the start point with 125m climb.

Drive to the parking place from the north, from La Montañeta. Follow roadsigns to Arenas Negras. Driving from the south is NOT allowed even though some navigators might say it is possible!

Mobilephone coverage is really bad at the area, a little bit better at the northern part of the map. Notice that weather can be cold in the mornings and rainy days (~12°C in the winter) but it usually gets higher during day.
