These caches are a qualifier of sorts. Their rating have no influence on the rating of this cache. This cache is going to very very challening all on its own. This cache has many aspects to it. It is a bounus cache, a puzzle cache, a multi cache, an offset, a heartache, a headache, a white whale. There are 4 stages to this cache. The first is the puzzle to find the first part of this multi. There will be projection so be prepared. The third stage is the physical challenge. The final is your reward for completeing the third leg. The legs are micros and the final is a small snapware container.

You will assign the type of container found at each cache a number value.

GC37CXX = H
GC39E2N = W
Then solve the following equation
Stage One is at

W 076 50.EFG
ABC= 1000 - ((H X 10 X 2) + (W X 17 - 2)) - 134
EFG= 476 - (H X W) - 345

This is not a easy cache. There are prerequisite caches need to complete this cache in order to prepare the cacher for what this cache requires. This cache is not kid friendly. You should not attempt this cache by your self. Cachers assume all risk and liability when attempting this cache. I am in no way responsible in any manner for people attemping this cache or any injury or hardship cause by thier attempt. Know you limits. Don't get yourself hurt or killed on this cache. You are going to need some equipment to find this cache. I suggest bringing both boots and tennis shoes. You should bring a small flash light. You should also bring a length of rope as a safety line. You will need a extraction tool. You should also bring gloves. You will need at least one other physically capable person who can help you if you need assisance or get hurt. I would have dry clothes and towels nearby just incase you need them.(you shouldn't unless something goes wrong.) You should have a cell phone to call for help incase of a emergency. If you want to claim this cache you will need retrieve every leg of this cache yourself. I do not agrree with one person making the grab for the group. Everyone must make it to the cache thierself if they would like to take credit for this cache. You may not attempt this cache before you have completed the two caches that are need to solve the puzzle, even in a group setting. Do not attempt at night or in incliment weather. Bring some water with you. Pictures that are not spoilers are welcome and enouraged. There is alot of bounce in this area so multiple gpsr are recommended. I hope that this cache is a memorable one for everyone who attempts it. I put a lot of time and energy into creating this cache please take care to rehide all caches as found or better. This is a 5x5 so please maintain that difficulty when you rehide. Enjoy
You do not need to be a rock climber, navy seal, fighter pilot, mixed martial arts fighter, or CHUCK NORRIS to complete this cache. It can be completed by the average peron who is reasonably fit as long as you bring the correct equipment and someone to help.
I have been asked if I would have logs deleted of cachers who have not found the caches that are required to be found before this cache. The answer to this question is yes. This is a bonus cache. You must complete the prerequisite caches first. Find the two required caches before attempting or logs will be deleted. All logs will be verified.
I have been asked to clarify this matter and publish it on the page.
Have fun and ENJOY
