Most seemed to be contouring around to the left well before the top of Sail, but I went over the top - the amount of climb was trivial and it seemed shorter, and traversing on steep slopes is never much fun.
    I went over the top as I remembered a checkpoint there in previous years and an instruction not to use the traverse. Prior to either of those I always used the traverse line. It didn't help that there was a guy in a yellow cag standing at the top of the short climb!

    I understand there should have been a marshal/checkpoint on top of Sail but this did not happen because of a shortage of manpower.
