This cache is temporarily unavailable.

GeoawareUSA4: This EarthCache is being temporarily disabled due to the Kīlauea lower East Rift Zone lava flows. This cache and about twenty others fall within a boundary of road closures and the closure of the majority of Volcanoes National Park due to earthquakes, corrosive volcanic ash, toxic gases, and continuing explosions from Halema‘uma‘u, the summit crater of Kīlauea Volcano.

If the EarthCache Owner has first-hand knowledge this EarthCache is in an area open to the public and can still be found, the EarthCache may be enabled. Otherwise, the EarthCache may remain disabled until the volcano is done putting on a show, the closed areas are re-opened, and the Cache Owner or local maintainer has visited the site and verified the EarthCache is still viable as written.

How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

This cache is hidden by the Holei Sea Arch. The reason for the high terrain rating is because of the lava.

Sea arches are very common, although there are few that are easily viewable. At Holei Sea Arch, the cliffs are 80-90 feet high, though waves still crash against it. The area closest to sea level erodes faster and is undercut by the waves, which will eventually cause the arch's collapse.

In order to log this cache, you must:

1. Take a picture of the Sea Arch with someone in your party and your GPS.

2. Answer the question: How was the Holei Sea Arch formed? (To answer this question, you may need to talk to a Park Ranger since there is no plaque at the site.)

Additional Hints (No hints available.)
