Rana Pirica:
Hello,

It is Rana Pirica, the geocache maintenance frog, once again hopping through your area to check on geocache maintenance.

Since there has been no owner activity on this cache page and it has been over 30 days since the request to perform maintenance, this cache has been archived. Please remove any remaining cache components if you have not already done so. If there are questions about the archival or if you would like it to be re-considered for listing please e-mail me or your local reviewer in response to this archival, and we will help to unarchive your cache if possible. I want to thank you for the time that you have taken to contribute to geocaching in the past and look forward to seeing your further participation in the future.

Sincerely,

Rana Pirica

Geocache Description:

Whilst the walk to this cache is mostly via dirt tracks and is relatively straight forward, the terrain is very steep and may be difficult for people who are very unfit, elderly or have physical disabilities. Take sensible shoes!

This description assumes you have parked your car at "the top" at S27 Deg 28.294', E152 Deg 56.504' (5m accuracy). You'll know if you've got the right car park, because nine people work across the road. It is also possible to approach this cache from "the bottom", but that would be a rather significant hike.

Assuming you have taken the correct path (some people take the wrong one - watch your GPSs closely!!) and you arrive near the location, you will discover a nice view of the land below and a steep gully that forces the path to curve down to the left. A tall, lone tree stands in the middle of the path on this corner, with a cavity in it's base - this is not to be confused with an identically situated tree found 20m earlier on the path. From this 2nd tree, turn 90 Deg to your right (up hill). There stands a tall red man who likes to sit by the edges of gullies. Walk up to him. The Cache is hidden at his feet on his upper side - look for the "C" mark and the small pile of rocks. You may need a small digging tool to help shift the layer of dirt covering it.

Be sure to fill out the Log Book and use the camera - BUT DO NOT TAKE THE CAMERA - LEAVE IT FOR OTHERS TO USE. If something has been left there with instructions - please read them! Cache position was averaged for 10 mins with an external aerial, achieving an accuracy of 5.7m due to some tree cover. Always replace and recover the cache as you found it! If you take something, place another item in the cache.

Be cautious when searching for the Cache - the area is very steep and the location is not very far from the car park as the crow flies. However, crows are dumb and don't always know the best path - stay as close to the path as you can!

April 2007 Update: We have received word that the trailhead path has been closed due to errosion (we told you it was steep!). A cross country trip may be required if you approach from the car park (and not the near-by Cache In The Middle). We have also been told of a new trailhead located at 100m to the SE of the car park. We will confirm when able.
