Geocache Name:

White Water (GC6B6A)

Difficulty/Terrain Rating:

3.5/3.5

Why this is the Geocache of the Week:

Did you see the picture? It looks like it’s photoshopped, but we can assure you it’s not. This photo actually came to us via the Geocaching Instagram (@GoGeocaching) and we couldn’t pass up on posting it for the whole world to see. The waterfalls than wind through parts of Mölndal, Sweden were once used to power industrial mills. Now, the water that rushes through the city is more of a tourist attraction. And for geocachers, the waterfalls present a challenge for those who want to earn their smiley on this geocache. You’ll have to summon your bravery to safely find your way to ground zero and back. Good luck!

What geocachers are saying:

(translated from Swedish) “I’ve thought about picking this up several time during the spring, since the water is friendly enough to keep a low level in the rapids. This evening I finally proposed to one of the kids to go on a evening walk, so we snuck down here and were amazed at what was hidden. Thanks!” – Asfalga

(translated from Swedish) “Fun and adventurous cache! A rope made it easier.” – King of Diamond

“What a fantastic place, one of the best cache experience I’ve had so far…Very big thanks for this nice cache, one favvo point for sure!” – cattivikkio
