This cache has been archived.

Simply Paul: Nevryan logs this with my permission as he was able to pinpoint the location, with my help. He'd done the physical caches and I was around to fill in the blanks as the info was missing from the Ben Nevis cache.

While the current owner of the Scafell Pike won't allow info to be replaced in his cache I don't feel it's wise to rehide a new box for this cache (at the original GZ it's been replaced by a tree. I suspect that's what the hole I put the box in was pre-dug for!) and so, sadly, and with apologies for those hoping to find it in the coming weeks and months, I'm archiving it. Sorry folks. [:(]
Well done to the people who did find it though- a mighty effort! I hope something similar can be rehidden near all three mountains in future, so you can get a bonus regardless of which order they're done in.

Geocache Description:

A bonus Three Peaks Challenge cache set to coincide with my Ben Nevis Vertical Limit Extreme Geocache Event -along with the one on top of Scafell Pike and Snowdon the following day. Please note, there is NO GEOCACHE at the given, fake, co-ords! Also, please don't log this cache unless you've found and logged the 3 peak caches; to do so would be 'cheating'!

To find this cache, first climb the three tallest mountains of Scotland (and the UK), England and Wales, find the physical caches at or very near the top, and make a note of the co-ord correction information you'll find in each of them. Do some simple maths and you'll have the correct co-ords for this Three Peaks Challenge bonus cache. Simples :)
