Geocache Description:

This cache is on the way to the famous Sandia Man Cave

This was my second one of the day and of my "career". Any input is appreciated.

First let me say, my GPS wouldn't give me more than 60ft accuracy when placing the cache. So, some searching may be required. In the spoiler, I've given a real good description of the path to take to get the cache.

After visiting Jasper's Overlook, you can continue on down 165 to the parking area for the Sandia Man Cave. Remember the $3 fee you just spent? Well it's still good here, so put your permit in the window again. The parking area is after the 2nd one-lane bridge at N35 15.027, W106 24.594. Once there, the path to take to the cave goes toward the north.

Follow this path until you can see the cave entrance in the distance up the cliff face. This is the FIRST time you can see the entrance. This is the point were you'll head to the right, up the hillside to my cache. This climb is strenous for some. Watch your hand holds and footing going up and especially back down. Good Luck!

Cache contents are Mardi Gras Beads, Junkyard Wars Off Road Vehicle, Chili's Pin, Golf Tees, Swiss Army Knife, Key Chains, Hotwheels car, and a Light Stick.
