Geocache Description:


*****CAUTION*****


DO NOT attempt this cache alone.
DO NOT attempt this cache at night.
DO NOT do this cache with small children.
Your cell phone will NOT have any reception here.
This is NOT a "walk in the park" cache.


The road to this cache has several along the way and some on down the road from it so you can actually do several caches on your trip.
When driving on this road be careful for the very sharp turn in the road. There is no sign to warn you it is coming. A little ways after that sharp corner you will come to Under the Waterfall
If you like this cache then you should do the rest of the "DeathWish" caches and Hole in the Wall

Park at N45 07.919 W069 48.728 and follow the trail down. Then follow the edge looking down at the series of waterfalls.

Since a lot of people have trouble finding the road here is a picture of it. Drive up the road my Subaru is sitting on.

The hunt for this cache will take you along a series of waterfalls. Here is the first one you will see as you come off the road.

Here is a closer view of the falls where you are starting out.

Walk along the top and look at all the waterfalls as you go. When you get to this one it is time to start your descent.

Here is the spot you need to go down. It is harder than it looks in this picture but there are good handholds. N45 07.898 W069 48.847

Once you get near the cache you will see the falls from this angle.

Now that you have found the cache you have to climb back up out of here. Have fun!

If you are like me and your sense of adventure far outweighs your sense of self-preservation then head on over and have a blast at this cache. Be careful climbing up and down here. There are loose rocks, rotten trees that don't look rotten but will break right off, as well as moss and ground cover that hides knee deep holes. If you fall into the water here you will be pummeled down several waterfalls before there is anywhere to get back out.
