Join us on an adventure to find the Geocache of the Week. Beautifully situated and high in elevation, Jonah’s Journey (GCJA3V) is a difficulty 5, terrain 5 cache.
While finding the cache may be a physical challenge, and it requires a flashlight and a rope, the journey to get to the treasure is nothing short of an incredible experience.
Located in the Dark Peak area of the Peak District National Park in Derbyshire, England, it’s a short walk from the nearby parking area to Froggatt Edge. Comprised of hard sandstone slopes, the Edge is frequently visited by rock climbers and hikers.
leled placed this small, traditional cache in April of 2004, attracting fellow adventurers to experience a breath-taking journey to get to the hidden treasure.
The view along the path and at the final destination is spectacular. Over 200 geocachers have logged a smiley. They have shared over 150 images in the cache’s photo gallery.
