Strubklamm GC14D8W GEOCACHE OF THE WEEK – August 1, 2011

Strubklamm GC14D8W

Not far from Salzburg, Austria a daring adventure waits among the steep cliffs that shoulder the Almbach River. Strubklamm (GC14D8W) is a difficulty five, terrain five geocache placed by Baumrinde & sternfänger in 2007.

The cache owners ask geocachers to understand the risks, find the cache in groups and bring the proper equipment. The list of equipment includes a wetsuit, helmet and climbing gear.

The cache container is located down a steep gorge. There’s more than just a cache to be found at this location. Cachers will navigate to the gorge, then climb up the canyon walls to jump off of perches (again and again) into a deep, refreshing pool of water. Some who logged a smiley on the cache say they jumped from as high as 13 meters (42 feet) into the water below.
