High Point

This is the course for the National XC Champs being held on 25-26th February 2017. It will be similar to 2016 NZ National Championships with a few tweaks.
The climb is not overly technical but has a few pinches and the lack of oxygen all make the climb a good challenge.
The downhill sections have a good combination of rocky patches and some amazing views.
