Geocache Description:

A challenging multi with no puzzle involved. Please note this is intended to be a challenging cache with a terrain of 4. Please return all containers in the same locations you found them and just as you found them. In order to claim a find you MUST sign the log book.

This three stage cache is located on the platte mound, the location of the world's largest letter M. This is quite a long hike that begins with climbing 266 steps. Near WP1 you can find a triangulation station disk from 1958 (NJ0874). For more information about benchmarks scroll to the bottom of this page and click "Find a Benchmark" on the right or click here. Let me know if you locate the disk near WP1. Not a small kid friendly cache as it requires climbing some small rocks.

Congratulations to zachjowi & vandoro for FTF.
