Geocache Description:

This cache was placed as an interesting diversion after reaching the beautiful Lagunita Seco cache. The trail continues up along the base of the cliffs on Palomas peak.

Follow the directions for getting to "Lagunita Seco", but continue along the trail past the meadow. The trail is slightly steeper up to the cliffs, but nothing that 99% of the population can't handle. Soon you will pass along the base of the huge overhanging rock ledges. Notice all of the clips screwed into the rock face along the way, the area is a popular rock climbing practice area. The trail along the cliffs is very scenic and unusual, but pay attention to the coordinates to find the easiest way to the cache. Everyone in our orignal group, from an 8 year old to a 50 year old made it without too much difficulty. If all hope is lost read the encrypted notes they will make you go aha! So bring a printout just in case. The original coffee can has been replaced by a plastic container, thanks fellow cacher. The coffee can was originally my daughter Abby's tea stash until Dad absconded with it. May it rest in peace!
