Geocache Description:

The "Kanzel" (pulpit) is a very isolated area on the south west side of the mountain Dobratsch at about 1200m. There are no real hiking paths to it, you have to find your way.

The cache consists of two stages, which are quite easy to find. The challange of this cache is to find the way. So you need good hiking skills and mountain boots. No special equipment (rope, ...) is necessary. It is helpful, if you are free of giddiness, but there are ways to the cache, where even this is no requirement.

I would propose two different starting points (both marked in the 1:50.000 map):
1. Förk at 640m. Find the forest road to the east.
2. Johannesbrunn at 550m. Here you have to go the last 2km by bike or by feet. The road there is paved, but cannot be legally driven by car. You can walk straight up following your GPS cursor or look for a forest road.
Both forest roads will not directly lead to cache. At some time you must leave the road and go into the terrain.

After finding the first stage (coordinates in the header), you have done most of the way. Sit down for a while and solve the little riddle inside the cache box. With the result (A) calculate the new coordinates of the second and final cache:
N46°(35.534 + A*0.144)
E13°(39.777 - A*0.333)

Enjoy the beautiful area, which my colleague calls "little Corsica" and the impressing view outside there.
