Geocache Description:

This Cache is on a reasonably steep grassy hillside near Aber Falls, North Wales.

The cache is hidden in a pile of rocks, under a small hawthorn tree, on a steep grassy hillside. The nearest parking place is about 1.5 miles away at 53º 13.698' N, 4º 0.319' W, and the cache is close to the impressive 200' Aber Falls waterfall.

The container is a green ammunition box, and is under a tree, hidden in a pile of rocks (see pictures "Open" and "Closed" to see which rock to remove. Be warned, though, there are several decoy trees on the way up :) Please look at the pictures to see which rock to remove. Don't go pulling the hillside apart - it took me a long time to make the hidey-hole for this cache

Inside, there is something to read, something for the parched traveller (don't forget your swiss army knife), something for the computer enthusiast, something to remind you of the area, and a few other items.

We've also put in a disposable camera, so please take a pic of yourself. Current photos are here (may contain spoilers). If you see yourself, please add your name under the picture! Second camera-ful of photos uploaded

Aber falls is a good day out for all the family - impressive scenery, fun in the stream for small people, and wild ponies. The fall itself is at 53º 12.637' N, 3º 59.735' W. However, the steep hillside near the cache is impossible for buggies, might not be suitable for small children, and may be slippery in wet weather
