Geocache Description:

The first geocache in Vesilahti.

Our good old friend travel bug Bob the Cache Builder was seeking for a new location. He had decided to stop in Vesilahti and his first location there was a mysterious cave, Pirunpesä (Devil's Nest), at Tuhnunvuori, near shoreline of Lake Pyhäjärvi. Bob liked the scene, but however, he wanted a nest of his own. He decided to move to another location and left in Devil's Nest only a small micro cache containing some key words about his next address. This well camouflaged film container is now located very near the end of the cave, most likely on your right side.

When Bob had moved to his new home he did not know any more where he actually was. Fortunately he had distance measuring equipment to define his location. BUT – the units of the distance readings are toy meters (”tm”) which are somewhere between feet and meters. The exact conversion factor does not matter anyway.

He got the following magical distance readings from his home to certain known points:

To Devil's Nest:
    10566.53 tm
   See the coordinates above.
To Devil's Castle:
    32129.57 tm
   Here is the first geocache in Lempäälä!
To the structure
displayed in the picture:
    34818.82 tm
   This is situated in Lempäälä, too.
   You have to solve the coordinates
   of the highest place of this structure.

The readings are measured two-dimensionally, the height is not taken into account. Your task is to calculate the coordinates of the cache and help Bob the Cache Builder to move to another city or commune. After that, this cache remains as an ordinary cache. The hint in the micro cache does not contain accurate values of the main cache location, it only decreases the amount of alternative solutions.

The terrain is not easy. Please, be very careful! In summertime you should also avoid destroying the moss on the stones.
