harroandchook: Apologies for the delay in updating this geocache. Unfortunately, the hiding place is no longer safe to re-establish the cryptex as it was completely destroyed. We've been on the hunt for a suitable relocation, but haven't found the perfect place just yet. In the meantime, we have no choice but to archive this listing.

Thanks for the amazing messages those of you who found it left - you certainly made us smile at the thought of the surprise on your face when you found it! That's the spirit of geocaching that we love!! H&C [:D]

How Geocaching Works

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

Geocache Description:

Based on a traditional Babushka, this is a Cache within a Cache within a Cache. This Babushka is located in the mildly bushy part of the northern section of Sophia Doyle Reserve bordered by Jasper Road, Turon Avenue, Lisgar Avenue and Glanmire Road. I would advise parking in Turon Avenue for easier access. This Cache is not suitable for swaps.

You will find a regular "egg shaped" cache and within it a cryptex just like the one in the "da Vinci Code". This will require you to break the code and locate the final cache within (which is a bison) containing the log book. Please do not take the cryptex. It is part of the babushka cache! There is also a pair of tweezers in the cache to assist in the extracting of the log from the bison. Please do not take them either. Finally, the hint below is essential for cracking the cryptex code.
