Geocache Description:

A high rope climb that dwarves the swings often put out in this lovely wood. Climb to find the final.

An Amberel TOP CACHE!

This climb is on the wonderful Core Hill. Further up the hill is a whole avenue of very climbable beech trees that I recommend you explore. Before then however, you must erect The Swing Of All Swings and have a lovely time. This area, and further up the hill, many rope swings come and go, but we can do better than that.

Park at the given waypoint and take the leftmost of the two pathways heading eastwards towards the coordinates. The leftmost path is less boggy and more satisfying than the right, but both will get you there.

Stand at the given coordinates and look up. High above you is a branch marked by a yellow reflective strip. Your job is to anchor a rope near the yellow marker, thus fashioning the Swing Of All Swings. Climb that rope, and find a small blue bison tube near the marker with instructions to find the cache.


But before you find the cache, have a really good swing. You only live once. A static rope is probably better for swinging, but I just had a doubled dynamic rope to play with. That was pretty cool too...!

The cache is a small lock'n'lock box, hopefully reasonably waterproof, but the proof of the pudding is in the, er, drinking.  

Do not attempt this cache without:

  • A climbing buddy
  • A minimum 50m rope
  • A harness
  • A helmet
  • A pen!

*Antpeng's 50m rope doubled over the limb and terminated 7ft above the ground.*

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. No part of this description is intended to provide any guidance or instruction whatsoever. Make sure you are personally competent to complete this challenge.
