Geocache Description:

Cache located in the "Reserve Naturelle des Haut-Plateaux du Vercors", protected area of wildlife and nature. Quite a remote area.
*******

The cache is located in the heart of a Natural Reserve, where some basic rules apply: no bikes, no fires and no engine-vehicles. Please respect nature and wildlife.

*********************

Cette cache est située dans le Parc Naturel Régional du Vercors, en plein cœur de la Réserve Naturelle des Hauts-Plateaux. Les règles d’usage dans ce type d’espace s’appliquent donc : pas de feu, pas d’engins motorisés ni de vélo, et surtout pas de dégradation de l’environnement naturel.
Sur le GR91, qui traverse la Réserve, vous passerez à proximité de la Fontaine de la Chau, un des rares points d’eau sur les Hauts-Plateaux.
La cache est accessible depuis Corrençon (environ 1 journée et demie de marche), Gresse (passage du Pas de la Ville, environ 3h) ou par les villages du Vercors occidental.

Cylindre de métal, contenant stylo et log book.
Probablement impossible à trouver sous la neige.
