Control 8 Answer Sheet

Answer:  C

 

 

Description:  8.  A-D    Between the pits

 

The challenge here is where am I and what bearing.  There are very few reference points on the map to help you solve this one.  And you obviously cannot see the pits in the terrain from this angle.  You must first determine where the viewing station is by looking at features behind you.  Then taking bearings can narrow the choices to B or C.  Control B is located lower on the hillside than the others and can be eliminated because it is too low.

 

Answer:  C
