Geocache Description:

These rocks that you will find on a height of 300 m above sea-level are the remains of the first marine shore where the Ardennes soil arose from the sea.
They are formed of quartzite and shale boulder.
They are named in honour of Mr. J. N. Crahay, General Manager of the Forestry Commission, thanks to whom the Ninglinspo site was protected and classified.

Park your car at N 50° 28.114 E 005° 44.631.
Walk upstream into the valley of the Ninglinspo.
Please use local ways and paths, don’t try to get a straight access to the rocks. Even the paths are very, very steep.

The cache is hidden at N 50° 27.813 E 005° 44.844.

If you want to search for the other cache hidden in this valley, don’t return to your car, but follow the red-white rectangular sign on many trees.

Il s'agit de vestiges du premier rivage marin (à 300 m sur le niveau de la mer quotidienne) constitués de cailloux de quartzites et de schistes qui, aux temps géologiques très anciens bordaient la terre ardennaise surgie de la mer.

Garez votre voiture à N 50° 28.114 E 005° 44.631.
Marchez vers le haut dans la vallée du Ninglinspo. Utilisez seulement les voies et les chemins, n'essaiez pas d'obtenir un accès droit aux roches. Même les chemins sont très, très raide.

La cache se trouve à N 50° 27.813 E 005° 44.844.

Si vous voulez chercher l'autre cache en cette vallée, ne retournez pas à votre voiture, mais suivez les signes rouge-blanc du G.R. sur beaucoup d'arbres.
