Geocache Description:

Stash is located near the 'Ruta de los Volcanes', on the rooftop of La Palma at the altitude of 1844 m.

The cache is a rubbermaid type box, wrapped in several plasticbags (box itself is probably NOT waterproof!). Buried directly behind a big Pine-Tree (hillside of trunk). Location is covered with a small stone-pyramid.

Watch out for a big branched tree (for mathematicians & physicists: branches look psi-shaped, quite near the ground). Dig under the stone-pyramid (about 30 cm). But keep in mind, the pyramid will soon be covered with pine-needles, so you might have to look for it carefully ;-)

Contents:

  • SUN-jojo
  • small bell
  • candle
  • SUN-pin
  • a rare 'Philadelphia' plastic knife
  • frame (for photos)
  • a heart & intestine (self growing ;-)
  • Escher nano puzzle


  • logbook
  • pencil
  • sharpener

The whole region seems wildfire-endangered, so please be careful. Please be sure to have rebuild the location properly, when leaving. We hope you'll enjoy the trip as much as we did - the whole 'Ruta de los Volcanes' is 17 km - great views over the island included!
