The Mother of all Landslides Cache, placed on Mother’s Day 2003.
The cache is placed at the base of a fairly large exposed ledge on the east face of Mt. Greylock. There’s no trail to it, but the Thunderbolt passes not too far away. It’s a fairly aggressive hike, somewhere around 1.2 straight line miles (one way) from the Greylock Glen area (took us about 2 hours to make it up). The elevation is 2,800 feet, so it’s about a 1,600 foot climb from the Glen. There are some pretty steep sections both on and off the trail. I wouldn’t advise trying to hike down from the road above, the terrain is rather extreme. The landslide that exposed the ledges occurred some time in the early 1990’s, or late 1980’s, as I recall.
