Geocache Description:

Eastern Powers, what are they? Are they China, India, and Russia?

They are, without a doubt. But this Eastern Power is, in fact, located in Denmark, within 25 kilometers of the start coordinates.


In order to find the treasure, you must obtain some special powers. But don't worry, no contact with kryptonite is involved.

We'll make it easy for you. No deliberate obfuscation; no subtle details which are easy to miss. No deep insights needed. We might say, it is pretty boring, except you are about to obtain an incredible power, and everybody craves for power, right?

Here is what you do. You take the digits of the East as a single number. You multiply this number by itself. And again. And again. And again. In fact, you do it as many times as represented by the digits of North, taken as a single number.

Or, to put it mathematically, your goal is to get the power:

12255595541695

After getting this much power, it should be trivial to collect the treasure.

Good luck and may the power be with you!
