Geocache Description:

Nice isolated place to enjoy a moment of calm for those time where you want to be left alone (rocks, hard terrain at the end. altitude: 192m, precision: 6m)

Elevated and isolated spot (~10m above the trees?) with a nice view of the park in front of the Tam-Tam. (which are at N45°30.858 & W73°35.111: a big public gathering every sunday of the summer, the montreal way of partying and relaxing :-)

Some people seems to be using the surrounding area to party and make fires but are not cleaning up! (leaving some bottles :-( )

Good shoes are required and the last 30m is a slippery slope (some sand) with rocks and some trees (not a family joy ride, well, unless you are the adam's family :-). I thought that a somewhat hard to reach virtual cache would make it more interesting for those who have more time to discover weird places in the Mont-Royal.

I may hide a real cache around there in the future... (Depending on the feedback i get. This is my first cache: don't be too harsh ;-)

IMPORTANT:
*To verify your find i would like to see a picture of your GPS or you (or both :) in front of the rock with the view of the park and if possible a picture of the surrounding area*

thanks.

"Bonne chance!"

Additional Hints (Decrypt)

[I usually reach the place from the "House on fire" cache, taking the small path nearby (when going down from that cache). oh, and do go during daylight, it will be too hard at night (and possibly dangerous!)]

[It can be found by going up from the Tam-Tam but an even harder slope will have to be escalated (but it is possible while going down so...)]
