The mapper has described Crater Block as one the best Nationals maps in decades.
Alistair Cory-Wright, who has already booked his tickets, comments that  “the combination of close-planted, runnable forest overlying the myriad of gullies cut into the volcanic soil will make for a super-fun, challenging, and memorable weekend.”

Iconic and renowned for its intricacy is how Marquita Gelderman has described Crater Block – “a myriad of complex gullies combined with rocks.  Multiple vegetation types make it one of those areas that if you master it, you feel on top of the world. I can’t wait to go”.

Tim Robertson, New Zealand’s own orienteering Sprint world champion, is setting the Sprint event at Crown Park in Taupō, spending time on the map when recently back in NZ. Get your entries in to enjoy four great days of orienteering over Easter!
