Geocache Description:

This geocaching tour will lead you on top of a mountain with three rocky towers and an excellent 360° panoramic view. The route is quite diverse and poses some interesting places. You will need mountain boots and some endurance in hiking. The last part is secured by a "mini Via Ferrata" but you don't need a special climbing-equipment. The total time for this adventure is about four to five hours.

Stage 1: N46°32.443 E014°19.041
Here you will find the German word for "Macna" and the time you need up to the summit. The sign also tells you the number of the hiking track (=ABA). The hiking track is marked with red-white-red stripes.

Stage 2: N46°31.(A+2)(B+4)(A-6) E014°19.(A-2)(B-2)(A)
The house to the west looks quite haunted. What could have been the purpose of this house? Please count the number of chimneys (=C).

Stage 3: N46°31.(C-1)(A-1)(B+6) E014°20.(C+2)(A-1)(B-2)
You'll find a nice little house with a single digit (=D) on it's walls.

Stage 4: N46°31.(D-2)(A+2)(B+3) E014°21.(D)(C+2)(B-3)
Enjoy the view at the little cottage. At the coordinates you will find a wayside shrine which was restaurated by a special club. Please take the alphabetical order of the first letters of the two words and sum them up, you'll get the number E.

Stage 5: N46°30.(E*3+8)(D-1) E014°21.(E/4)(D+4)(C)
That's the chappel of "Anna". On the southern part of the chappel you'll detect a number (=F) on a marbled plate. Just a few meters beside you will be able to see the "Großglockner" at good weather conditions.

Stage 6: N46°30.(F/5)(E/3)(D) E014°21.(C+4)(F-E)(E/3)
Congratulations - now you reached one of the summits of this mountain. Take the digit sum (=G) of the four digit number on the marbled plate.

The final cache can be found at the way back at another viewpoint

N46°(G+D+1).(D+2)(F-E+4)(A+1) E014°(E-5).(C+D)(A+2)(B)

Happy geocaching!
