Geocache Description:

Please note that the listed co-ordinates are for the nearest carpark!

Part of my job is teaching navigation techniques for people travelling in the hills and mountains. This is usually with a map & compass but nowadays more folks are using GPS. There a lots of different ways to use a map & compass and few different ways to use your GPS. The idea behind this geocache is to get you to use your GPS unit in a different way to normal.

Unless you know the area, you will probably want to have a look at a map to help you puzzle this cache out Link to OS Maps. The longitude of the cache is W 003o 57.002

Other nearby geocaches are the Manncubs' "Third Place" GC139Z3, Dyffryn's "Prince of Wales Gold Mine Cache" GC1FD7V, Taffhunter's "Cymer Thingy" GC1FMGJ and my "Foel Ispri" multicache GCYKP4. If you've got a bike, you could also cycle down to Tywyn Team's "Mawddach Trail Cache" GCQKMW.

Many thanks to the Snowdonia National Park for giving me permission to place this geocache on their land. For more information about the local area from the Snowdonia National Park click this link.
