“Wahe Ka-Ho-Nee” GCJZDX Geocache of the Week – March 7, 2011

Scaling cliff to reach the "Wahe Ka-Ho-Nee"

“Thank you Colorado for placing a cache here. I am exhausted and will never forget this adventure, definitely one of my all time favorites.” That’s the latest log entry for “Wahe Ka-Ho-Nee” (GCJZDX). It’s an extreme geocache rated a difficulty 2 and terrain 5. The cache owner, Colorado Jones, insists you not try this cache alone and suggests that you tell someone where you’re going and when you’ll return home. It’s easy to see why he’s so insistent. Finding the cache requires a rope, hiking poles, shoe spikes and safety supplies.  Cachers wade through water and encounter poisonous plants, loose rocks and dangerous heights.

The cache description consists of an elaborate story written by Colorado Jones about an explorer completing a rite of passage. For geocachers who complete the extreme cache, they join an exclusive group. Only 31 people have logged a smiley on this cache since it was hidden in 2004.
