Geocache Description:


[CZ] O kesi

Prijmete pozvani na vylet po Vysokem hrebeni. Pri teto ceste navstivite celkem 11 tisicovych vrcholu. Prestoze polske tisicovky nejsou tam vyrazne a zajimave, jako ty ceske, zajimavosti se tu najdou. Cestou potkate raseliniste [informace], opustenou horskou enklavu, nejvyse polozeny lom ve stredni Evrope, krasne skalni utvary, vyhledy na Krkonose a Jizerske hory. A na konci dlouhe cesty vas ceka krabka s logbookem.
V prubehu cesty muzete navstivit dve hospody (Schronisko na Stogu Izerskem, Schronisko Wysoki Kamien [informace]), kde mivaji i ceske pivo a vyhledy stoji za to. Listing je strucny, aby se vesel do GPS, nektere pristroje dlouhe listingy nezobrazi.

Upozornujeme, ze se jedna narocny vylet. Start je na Smrku, coz znamena od vlaku nebo jineho dopravniho prostredku minimalne 5 kilometru a take 500 vyskovych metru. Celkove je vylet dlouhy asi 25 - 30 kilometru. Pokud jste zdatni turiste, ujdete trasu za den. Krome vystupu na Smrk uz trasa neobsahuje zadne podobne prevyseni. Na odlov si vyhradte cely den a hezke pocasi, za mlhy a deste to neni ono. Pokud chcete, muzete se podivat na pohled z kamery na Stogu Izerskem. Auto jako dopravni prostredek neni moc vhodne, protoze se jedna o prechod. Lze nechat auto ve Swieradow Zdroj, vyjet nahoru lanovkou a vratit se tam na kole (priblizne 20 kilometru) ze Szklarske Poreby. Trasu lze absolvovat na horskem kole, ale drzte se doporuceni v listingu, cast trasy vede kolem raselinist. V zime je mozne vyuzit lyze, cast trasy byva strojove upravena. Ale za vyssi snehove pokryvky nelze zimni variantu doporucit.

[EN] About the cache

Welcome to a trip on Wysoki Grzbiet. You will visit 11 peaks over 1000 meters. Although the peaks on the Polish side are not so interesting, you can find some interesting places there. You will see a peat-bogs, an abandomed village, an abandomed quarry, a nice rocks and a nice views. And finally, you should find the nice box with logbook at the end of your journey. There are also two chalets (Schronisko na Stogu Izerskem, Schronisko Wysoki Kamien).

Please note, that this will be demanding trip. You will start on the mountain Smrk. It means, that the initial coordinates are at least 5 kilometers and 500 meters uphill from a train station or a bus station. Total distance is 25 - 30 kilometers. The cache is on the other side of the mountains. You can use your MTB bike (read notes in text) or ski in winter. Nice weather and whole day is needed. During misty and rainy days this trip is not a good idea.

[EN] Route

Coordinates Letter Description
N 50° 53.460 E 015° 16.622 A We start at boundary crossing. On the boundary you should find boundary stone. A is two digits number below Roman number IV.. Use photohint.
Follow the green marked trail.
N 50° 53.311 E 015° 17.563 B You can take a rest. Find a stone with yellow table Lacznik (Herndorfer Kamm). We want number on this table.
Follow the green marked trail to Stog Izerski [info].
N 50° 53.507 E 015° 18.286 C There is a fence around the transmitter. The color of fence is... C=number of letters in the name of this color in english + 1
[Bike] Go to Stog Izerski chalet and then follow the red marked trail to south. Stop on N 50° 53.074 E 015° 18.927 (R2) and turn right to the unmarked trail.
[On foot] Follow the main ridge to Bagienko. You can find the "peak" on coordinates N 50° 53.173 E 015° 18.485. There is a peat-bog on Bagienko, but it's not easy to find the top. [photo]
N 50° 53.158 E 015° 18.549 D You are now not far from the top of Bagienko. Find the white label on a tree. How many letters are there?
Return to the unmarked trail and then follow red marked trail to an old ski slope at Luzec [info].
N 50° 53.036 E 015° 19.791 E You are now at the end of the old ski slope. You can see a transmitter, remains of a trailer and a brown wooden building. How many letters has the white inscription on wooden building?
Return to the red marked trail and follow it to Swieradowec [info].
N 50° 52.811 E 015° 20.325 F Swieradovec is only the part of Luzec. How many white/red signs (markings of trail) are on the trees nearby? F=3
[Bike] It's better to bypass Podmokla peak, the trail is waterlogged. So go to Polana Izerska and then bypass Podmokla to a crossroad on coordinates N 50° 52.132 E 015° 22.848.
[On foot] Go to Polana Izerska and then follow the red marked trail. You will pass several flat peaks, the first one is Podmokla [info] [photo]. You will see a young forest and peat-bogs around the trail. And after passing Szerzava peak, you will see a nice view.
N 50° 52.132 E 015° 22.848 G Here you can take a rest, before you start a demanding ascent to Sine Skalki. Find boundary stone with several three digits numbers. Note the digit in the middle (correct number is 4G2). If you need help, find red info sign and on left side on tree, you find micro cache with sum of indices.
Now follow the red marked trail and ascend to the peak Sine Skalki [info]. It will not be easy, but you can expect nice views. If you turn round, you will see everything, you managed to pass. There is a viewpoint with benches, just before the top.
N 50° 51.676 E 015° 23.632 H Ascending Sine Skalki. Find boundary stone with two three digits numbers (see photohint). Make sum of all digits of these two numbers.
Follow the red marked trail. If you want to visit another peak, you must turn to a forest path, exactly at the place, where the red marked trail turns right. This peak is Przednia Kopa [photo]. You can find blueberries there in summer. Do not forget to find a lonely spruce with PET container, you should be interested in its content. Then follow the red marked trail. At the place, where you find a shelter for tourists, you can take an unmarked trail to the highest peak of the Jizera Mountains, Wysoka Kopa (there is a geocache GC28BP4). Now leave the red marked trail and take a significant unmarked trail to quarry Stanislaw.
N 50° 51.043 E 015° 26.290 I We will bypass the top of Izerskie Garby [info], because this peak is almost identical with Stanislaw quarry [info]. Stanislaw is a quarry with the highest altitude in central Europe. The quarry is now abandomned because mining was not cost-effective (half of the year the quarry is covered with snow). But this quarry was well known for its high quality quartz. From the coordinates you see a building on the left side at the end of the quarry. The building is built from? bricks (I=3), stone (I=4), wood (I=5). See photo hint.
Go through the quarry. A short tour is recommended, but care about your own safety! There are some places where you can fall down. On spring you can see copulating frogs in pools and during the whole year industrial architecture. Go down from the BTS, and must join the red marked trail. This trail will lead you to Zwalisko.
N 50° 50.941 E 015° 27.261 J The are nice views from the top of Zwalisko [info] and you can see several nice rock formations there (and geocache). On coordinates on the top of the rock formation you will find an ancient sign carved in stone. This sign surely leads to a treasure and this is your last missing letter. How many triangles do form this carved sign? If you want to be sure that you search on the right place, enjoy the view from the rock formation.
Now you have all you need and you can calculate the final coordinates. Geocache is quite far from here, so don't be surprised after you see the result.
