How Geocaching Works

A tree cache with no obvious or easy single-pitch.
To be honest I just fancied climbing a tree and thought I'd put a cache out. This is an oak tree very close to the A30, although there is no access from the main road. Please use the parking waypoint or nearby roads.
The beauty of oak trees I think lies in their spread, and this is no exception. I wanted to place a cache high up, but no obvious routes present themselves (at least to me). I took seven or eight short pitches to get to ground zero, though I didn't necessarily go the most efficient way because it's a good tree to limb-walk and swing around in.
You are looking for a drinks-bottle sized container. See the spoiler images for details. The challenge of this cache is in the terrain rather than the difficulty, hence the rating (which inevitably causes consternation, but that's impossible to avoid...) It is large enough for small swaps and trackables, and contains a FTF badge for the lucky winner.
Do not attempt this cache without:
Nobody - not me, not geocaching.com, not your lucky pants - is responsible for your safety apart from YOU. Do not attempt if you are at all unsure. The ground is nice and soft but not soft enough.
