How Geocaching Works

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

Geocache Description:

The cache is at the above coordinates but you must meet or have met three of the six Criteria below, to be able to go and sign the log of the cache. I qualify for this cache many times over.

The picture is of myself and brother Gavin (groovy_gav) wet and cold on top of Ben Nevis in August 2009. (4406 feet-1344 Metres)

So to claim the cache you must meet three of the criteria below:

1. Found a cache at an altitutude of at least 1000 Metres
2. Found at least 10 caches at an altitude of at least 400 Metres
3. Found at least 5 caches at an altitude of at least 500 Metres
4. Found a cache at an altitude of at least 400 Metres in at least 2 GB Countries (England, Scotland or Wales).
5. Found at least 1 cache at an altitude of at least 400 Metres in a non-UK Country
6. Found at least 3 different cache types at an altitude of at least 400 Metres

I qualify for this cache on all criteria:
1. I have found a cache above 1000 Metres. (Ben Nevis)
2. I have found 8 caches above 500 Metres.
3. I have found 12 caches above 400 Metres.
4. I have found caches in England and Scotland above 400 Metres.
5. I have found an Earth cache, virtual cache and traditional caches above 400 metres.
6. I have found caches above 400 Metres in three Countries outside the UK. (Laos, Switzerland and Spain)

The cache is a magnetic tube.

List either in your log, via a bookmark list, or a linked webpage: The numbers of the three criteria you qualify by, GC code/cache name of your qualifying caches, and for each of them, the altitude, date found and if appropriate, cache type and country.

For Bookmark lists I will verify claims using Google Earth.

Failure to comply will end up with your log being deleted.

Caches found before the listing of this cache do count.
