Geocache Description:

Eftasåsen Borettslag ligger på Oppsal i Østensjø bydel. Borettslaget har 164 andelsleiligheter, 40 av dem er i 10 vertikaltdelte rekkehus og 124 leiligheter er i 31 horisontaltdelte 4-mannsboliger.

De første beboerne flyttet inn i 1956.

På de oppgitte koordinatene vil du se et skilt med oversikt over borettslaget. Her vises også hvilke farger de forskjellige husene har. Du vil kanskje oppdage at kartet ikke lenger er helt nøyaktig. Da alle fasadene ble pusset opp i 2011/2012, valgte man å male om de grønne husene til en av de andre tre fargene.


For å finne cachen tar vi utgangspunkt i de opprinnelige fargene som vist på kartet:
Antall gule bygninger er A
Antall grønne bygninger er B
Antall grå bygninger er C
Antall røde bygninger er D.
(tell kun en bygning per adresse)
I tillegg må du telle hvor mange høyder med stein det er i muren bak skiltet. Bruk det høyeste antallet rader som E.

Cachen finner du ett minutts gange unna, på:
N59 5(2B/E].[E][B-C][A-D] E010 5[D-B].[C+E-A][B-E][(C+E)/A].


Eftasåsen Borettslag is a housing co-op at Oppsal in Østensjø borough. The coop has 164 units of which 40 are in 10 row houses, and 124 are in 31 horizontally divided 4-unit houses.

The first owners moved into the houses in 1956.

At the given coordinates you will see a big information board with an overview of the co-op. It also shows which colour each building has. You may notice that the map is no longer completely accurate. When all the houses got new facades in 2011/2012, the green houses were repainted in one of the three other colours.

The cache

To find the cache look at the original colours as depicted on the map:
The number of yellow buildings is A
The number of green buildings is B
The number of grey buildings is C
The number of red buildings is D.
(Only count one building per address)
In addition, count how many rows of stones there are on top of each other in the wall behind the board. Use the highest number of rows as E.

You will find the cache a minute's walk away, at:
N59 5(2B/E].[E][B-C][A-D] E010 5[D-B].[C+E-A][B-E][(C+E)/A].
