- Control sites must be on or near (<50 m) drawn linear features (tracks, fences, streams, distinct vegetation boundaries, etc) but preferably not at turning points. This gives the opportunity to follow handrails or to cut across country (i.e. limited route choice).
- Control sites shall be visible from the approach side by any reasonable route.
- Compass use is limited to rough directional navigation.
- Contour recognition is not required for navigation but simple contour features may be used for control sites. Doglegs are permitted.
