Jonah’s Journey GCJA3V – GEOCACHE OF THE WEEK – June 25, 2012

Enjoying the view from the cache location

Join us on an adventure to find the Geocache of the Week. Beautifully situated and high in elevation, Jonah’s Journey (GCJA3V) is a difficulty 5, terrain 5 cache.

While finding the cache may be a physical challenge, and it requires a flashlight and a rope, the journey to get to the treasure is nothing short of an incredible experience.

Located in the Dark Peak area of the Peak District National Park in Derbyshire, England, it’s a short walk from the nearby parking area to Froggatt Edge. Comprised of hard sandstone slopes, the Edge is frequently visited by rock climbers and hikers.

leled placed this small, traditional cache in April of 2004, attracting fellow adventurers to experience a breath-taking journey to get to the hidden treasure.

The view along the path and at the final destination is spectacular. Over 200 geocachers have logged a smiley. They have shared over 150 images in the cache’s photo gallery.

This remote cache has earned more than 60 Favorite Points and geocachers have logged notes like, “this one’s for the books,” or “aaaaaaaaaaaamasing!!”

Should you decide to embark on this epic journey, the cache page provides a lot of clues. However, for those who prefer to experience the full challenge, we recommend holding off on reading the logs.

  • We got this cache at the weekend just gone as part of day of extreme caching – 10 5/5 in one day 😀 Amazing cache

  • I wish the Geocaches of the week featured more I could take my 7 year old granddaughter to and less 5/5 extreme caches.   White they are interesting, I think granddaughter friendly ones can be interesting also. 

  • Nick, good suggestion. We’ll find a Geocache of the Week that’s a great grandchild/grandparent outing for next week. Any suggestions?

  • Earthcaches and virtuals are great because of education mixed with fun, but they miss being able to find things.  I like caches that involve not a long walk, no dangerous activities involved and the possibility of a interesting container or a cache with possibly some fun swag.  (my granddaughter calls micros no fun ones).

    One I found and wished my granddaughter was with me was the Commissioner’s Observatory GC1AMFV.  It is on the beach, you can see the ocean form it, has some local history, easy to find, and usually has interesting swag.
