A hike up past the wheel and towards the Upper Laxey mines. Cache is located 500 vertical feet higher than the Laxey Wheel so its a bit of a haul up there !
A nice walk up towards the upper mines. The track is quite washed out in places but still easily passable. The day I placed the cache there was a bitter wind whistling down the valley.
The cache is located alongside a waterfall which in summer is barely a trickle, but in November is quite impressive (for the Isle of Man)
Although you can climb higher than the cache the rocks get quite slippy higher up - after I placed the cache I headed up towards the top for a better view of the valley. Unfortunately cycling shoes and wet rock don't mix and I nearly came down a lot faster than I went up :)
The cache is a small supperware box containing a stem plug for a mountain bike and a friction drive motorbike.
Removed second set of co-ords - the ones at the top of the page have been confirmed as the correct ones.
