This cache has been archived.

Simply Paul: Sadly there was no sign of this - kids have built an extensive camp on top of it. If the recent DNFers would like to contact me via Messenger with the final co-ords they have for this one I should be able to upgrade them to Courtesy Finds.

Rather than replace it I'm archiving as GZ doesn't look to be returning to nature any time soon. Thanks for finding it everyone! I hope you enjoyed the experience.

Geocache Description:


Set for the 2018 Winter Geolympix Mega with help and permission from the National Trust. If you intend to take part in the Letter/Box Challenge (Find 36+ LetterBox/Hybrid caches: A-Z, 1-10 and others, on the day of the Mega) or would like to see this cache in 'fancy' mode on the day/night of the Mega you may wish to leave it for now.


A Puzzle-type Letterbox/Hybrid cache (please don't remove the ink pad or stamp; they're not swaps) - The cache is NOT at the given co-ords. You have to crack a puzzle or code first. The cache is within a mile or 1.5Km of the given co-ords.

Method 1: Use some AANDs (Aluminium Alpha-Numeric Discs. There are around 4,000 in circulation) and go to N51° 48.CCH' W000° 35.GFJ. Ohbjhmf vghbg bnlahmzshnm ne ZZMCr xnt mddc bntkc ab x 1/100 drbpp, pl F'sb xaaba pljb zirbp ql qefp mxdb.

Method 2: Solve this cache's twin, and deduct 0.053 from the Northings and deduct 0.189 from the Westings to get the co-ords for this cache. Easy! This also works vice-versa, of course...

Method 3: Take the final digit of the year these videos/promotional films made their public debut to calculate the final co-ords of this cache, using the following formula. There are larger versions in this cache's Gallery if you need a better look. Good luck!

The final is hidden at N51 4A.BC W000 3D.EF where:

A = L+M
B = Jx((H+T)-R)
C = (N-K)+(Z-V)
D = (U-G)+(P-Q)
E = ((W+O)xY)-M
F = X-S

Checksums:
G+H+J+K+L+M+N+O+P=45
Q+R+S+T+U+V+W+X+Y+Z=46

G =

H =

J =
(No I to avoid confusion with 1)

K =

L =

M =

N =

O =

P =

Q =

S =

T =

U =

V =

W =

X =

Y =

Z =

Please DO NOT remove the stamp or ink pad. Neither is a swap - They make this cache a LetterBox/Hybrid. Thank you!
