Geocache Description:

A dark, wet journey into the home of the Orcs.

The coordinates listed for this cache are actually just the entrance to the Orc's domain. You must be brave! You must endure the foul stench of Orcs all around you. Travel towards where the sun comes from, straight and sure until you reach the ladders of ascension. At the base of the ladders of ascension, you will find a bleeding yellow 'eye'. It is here that you will find the key to the treasure.

Cache box is a 30 cal ammo box painted to match the surroundings. It contains a log book, cache camera (to take a picture of yourself), and small assortment of trade items including a VHS edition of the animated Lord Of The Rings, a knife, a flashlight, a ring of power, a compass, etc.

Due to the nature of this cache, it should NOT be done alone. You should leave a cacheplan with someone detailing where you will be. You will need a dependable flashlight/headlamp, and should bring a backup light for safety. You will be walking in a stream bed, so boots are recommended, or at least shoes that you don't mind getting wet, and have good traction on wet rocks.

Please make sure cachebox is well concealed when you are finished with it.

Please do not mark cache as found unless you actually reached it.

!!!!!! Rain will make the stream rise, and potentially dangerous. Do not attempt this cache right after it has rained, while it is raining, or if rain is in the forecast. !!!!!!
