Geocache Description:




Gibraltar Rock


Gibraltar Rock is a State Natural Area and as such physical caches cannot be hidden there. The posted coordinates will take you to WP1, a commemorative plaque honoring those that settled this area many years ago. Getting there will require a moderate hike (.6 mi./300 foot change in altitude). The plaque contains three dates that will be used to obtain the coordinates of the bison tube that is hidden less than a mile away (as the crow flies).

The dates are:


Surveyed: ABCD
Homesteaded: EFGH
Dedicated: IJKL

Final coordinates = N43 (20000 - KC) W89 (35500 - KC)

After determining the coordinates for the final, go back to your car and drive to get the cache.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO WALK FROM WP1 TO THE FINAL. Bring your own pencil. The use of the plaque at the summit of Gibraltar Rock for WP1 has been approved by DNR Conservation Biologist, Thomas Meyer.


Congratulations to seekers8711 on the FTF
