Geocache Description:

This cache has it all! A nice view of a treefern-dotted glen and a suburb in the distance, a babbling brook, and a physical challenge to get to!

This is a pleasant 13km return walk. I managed to visit this cache site without a rope, but I'm quite scratched for my troubles :) You may get by without a rope if you are a bit of a monkey like me (I'd grade the climb at about 17 or 18, australian rock climbing scale)... but if you have 20 or 30 metres of rope, it will be handy. If you have abseiling and prusiking gear, this is a walk in the park. Take a friend on this one.

The container is a Peters icecream container (lite!). When placed, it contained:

  • 3x CDRs
  • 2 x luminous lizard ceiling decorators
  • A spud gun (yeah! go for it!)
  • A 35 piece jigsaw puzzle
  • A bug-in-a-walnut toy
  • About 5 x satchets of Kool-Aid (powdered drink, which I brought all the way from the States!)

Addendum: ThomasS visited this cache, and kindly left a Canberra keyring inderneath the cache site, for anyone who for whatever reason is unable to get to the actual cache.
