pityulino: This cache operates recently as a 'virtual' cache due to the fact that it is impossible at the moment to hide a physical cache there. As there is no possibility any more to have a 'virtual' cache on the website, I archive this cache.
The cache can still be found and logged - following the provision of a password, which van be found in the logbook - as a virtual cache on the website under the code name GCMIX.
