Giriando: This series needs to be replaced, the puzzles are missing or lost and some containers are broken.
I want to thank everyone who did this series.
I hope to replace this series this fall with a new set (So you can all get new smiles out of it!).

Geocache Description:

Welcome to The Riddler Series!

This is a series of six caches in the Holcombe Preserve owned by the Newtown Forest Association. There is a field puzzle in each cache of this series which will give a clue to the location of the final 6th cache.

The preserve is open year round but is closed at night. No motorized vehicles; dogs allowed on leashes.

Riddle me this, Riddle me that, who is afriad of the big black bat*
Riddle me this!

The Riddler has stolen this cache and has given this clue for Batman to find it!

Riddle me this Batman:

When is the highest mountain not the tallest?

This cache is located at:

N41 23.360+X
W73 20.288+X

Where "x" is equal to the the 3 lowest (rightmost) digits of the total height (in feet) of the World's Tallest Mountain.

The Riddler has left a field puzzle inside of this cache which once you solve it will give you a three digit number. Record this number as you will need it at cache #5 to solve for the location of the final 6th cache. Note: Use 123 for cache 1 until I can replace this broken field puzzle.

See link to the NFA website: Holcombe Preserve

Holcombe Fact:
Mr. and Mrs. Holcombe moved to Newtown in 1934. In that year they purchased land on Great Hill Road in 1938 where she resided until her death in 1997.
