CHALLENGING CACHE WARNING!

For some cachers, this could be considered a terrain 5, for others, it's an easy "walk", but for most, it will be a challenge. This cache is not for the faint of heart, it involves climbing to precarious heights, and there is a very real chance that you could get hurt. Special equipment is NOT required to reach the cache container, but if you doubt your abilities or are acrophobic, you may want to use some sort of safety protection.

LOGGING REQUIREMENTS

The challenge of this cache is to actually reach the container, not having your buddy sign your name! In order to claim a find for this cache, you need to physically touch the cache container in its hiding place and sign the logbook.EACH MEMBER of a caching group MUST SIGN INDIVIDUALLY! Obviously, posting photos of you actually signing the cache, and any other hilarious shenanigans are always appreciated.

The cache is a camouflage taped PET Preform hidden about 2 Artys up a tree in a tangle of trees. The container has been secured to the tree to ensure it does not fall out. Do not tamper with the attachment mechanism, or your log will be removed!
There is absolutely NO need to step foot on any private property that may be nearby. Should it be proven that you have done so, your log will be removed.

Note: We found this treehouse during the BT Hike Event [GCZZZ2], and it really has nothing to do with this cache.

NOTES:

Climbing required, hope you're not afraid of heights!
Bring a buddy... Never climb alone!
Winter friendly, but ice could be an issue.
