Geocache Description:

PLEASE READ THE CACHE DESCRIPTION BEFORE ATTEMPTING THIS CACHE. YOU WILL NEED TO CLIMB TO THE TOP OF PIGEON HOUSE MT. IF YOU DON’T THINK YOU CAN DO THIS THEN DON’T ATTEMPT MY CACHE.

Like a high rise building towering above the city or a smoke stack jutting out from an industrial area this pinnacle stands tall above the surrounding bushland. It is one of the south coasts more recognised icons and is a popular destination for all bushwalkers.

Pigeon House Mt lies on the outskirts of the Morton National Park, it makes a great ½ day walk offering 360deg views or it can be a good stepping stone for more experienced walkers who want to head deep into the Morton wilderness to such places as ‘The Castle’.

With the demise of the previous cache here I thought it was time to place another cache out here thus attracting fellow cachers to this great location. In setting this cache I consider myself a fairly fit and experienced bushwalker. So some of my timings may take you a lot longer.

The easiest way to access this area is from Ulladulla where most 2wd’s will make it to the Pigeon House carpark, be warned the road is dirt and at times can be rough depending on the weather. The walk itself is signposted as a 4hr return trip but I can assure you its easily done in a much shorter time. I did the whole walk in 2hrs and then spent a further 45min hiding and exploring the area so as a guide allow 3hrs for this cache.

The main walking track to GZ is well defined. It is very steep in locations and there are ladders to negotiate. So please remember this when considering this cache. I have given a description below on the approximate times it took me to reach each point. GZ is on top, but is just below the trig. It can NOT be reached from the trig, so don’t climb over the handrails at the trig in an attempt to retrieve this cache. The cache is nowhere near the edge and is not in a dangerous position, however I would suggest its not geokid friendly. In hiding this cache I have picked a spot that I hope has minimal muggles.

To access the cache you will need to crawl through the crevasse, (well I did) which you’ll see once on top. The crevasse is identifiable by the large rock (chockstone) that sits right in the middle of it. Once under the rock hug the rock wall on your right. GPS coverage right at GZ was poor so see the photos for details. Be aware that muggles above you may see you approaching the cache. Enjoy the views, don’t forget your camera, take all your rubbish with you and take plenty of water.

Hope you enjoy.
