This raises more procedural questions for the certifier.
It is well-established that integral multiples of a certified loop course are also considered certified. That is not necessarily the case with out-loop-back courses.
This course, however, is an out-loop-back course with a common start/finish point. Should the certificate call it an out-loop-back course, or does this particular combination of circumstances make the course a loop?
Or should the course map show the start/finish point as a "multi-loop turnaround" or something like that and the course thus be described on the front of the certificate as a loop? One could make the same argument about a straight out and back course.
I realize I'm nitpicking here, but I think the example raises questions about why we list the course configuration on the front of the certificate.
