Geocache Description:

Aparkalekutik km bateko paseoa dago altxorrera iristeko. Hau poltsa beltz batean dagoen tuper txiki bat da. KONTUZ! INGURUAN SIMAK DAUDE.
There is about 1 km walk from the parking to the cache, which is a Tupperware inside a black plastic bag. BEWARE OF THE HOLES ON THE FLOOR.

Urbasa eta Andia mendiek luze-zabalera handia duen parke naturala osatzen dute, Nafarroaren ipar-mendebaldean.
Pagadi ikusgarriek lur gehiena hartzen dute, baina haietaz gain, astigarrak, haginak, ipuruak eta pinuak aurki ditzakegu bertan. Soilguneetan -1000 metro ingurutik gorako altitudean kokaturiko lautadak- basoaren ordez, hor-hemenka txilarrak eta elorriak dituzten belardiak aurkituko ditugu. Ingurune hauetan oso ohikoa da behorrak eta ardiak bazkatzen ikustea.
Urbasan amildegi eta kobazulo ugari dago. Ondorioz, oso toki interesgarria da espeleologia maite dutenentzat.
Urbasan hainbat begiratoki daude, ikuspegi paregabeez gozatzeko aukera ematen digutenak. Hona: Pilatosen Balkoia, Urederraren iturburua, Lizarragako behatokia, Urbasako jauregiaren ondoan kokaturiko mahai panoramikoa.
Autoa, parkingean utz dezakezu: N42 51.256 W2 09.633.
Koordenadek sima batera eramaten zaitu. Francoren indarrek fusilatutako errepublikar eta eusko gudariak bota zituzten sima honetatik behera. Askatasunaren aldeko borrokalari hauen omenez, bertan eskultura bat badago. Harri batean euskaraz hitz batzuk badaude, baita data bat ere (eguna = x).
Azken koordenadak hauek dira N42 51.142+x W2 08.872-x
Spoileraren argazkiak arroka egokira eramaten zaitu, baino argazkian agertzen diren harriak ez dira berdinak.

Urbasa and Andia mountains form a large Natural Park located in the northwest of Nafarroa.
Most of the land is full of spectacular beech tree grove, but you can find maples, yews, junipers and pines too. In the flatlands at 1000 m of altitude, instead of woods, you will find meadows with flying heathers and thorns every now and then. It's quite common to see ship and mares grazing on grass in those meadows.
There are plenty of cliffs and caves in Urbasa. Therefore, it's a very interesting place for speleology lovers. There are also several viewpoint, with incomparable views, such as the balcony of Pilatos, the source of Urederra, the viewpoint of Lizarraga, the panoramic table next to the Palace of Urbasa.
You may park at N42 51.256 W2 09.633.
The coordinates will bring you to a cave where shot republicans and Basque fighters where thrown by the forces of Dictator Franco in 1936. There is an sculpture in tribute to those fighters for freedom at this point. You'll find a stone with some words in Basque and a date. Wright down the day of the date (x).
The final coordinates are N42 51.142+x W2 08.872-x.
The spoliers will lead you to the right rock, but the stones shown in the picture are not longer there.
