Zde najdi bránu a vedle ní na zdi bílou plastovou tabuli s otvírací dobou. Secti dve trojmístná císla rozdelená lomítkem (vedle slova Vinohradská). Získás tak trojmístné císlo ABC. Dopocítej císla:

P.S. Vzhledem ke kluzkému charakteru terénu v okolí cache doporucuji obzvláste za vlhka ci snehu opravdu dobré boty. Prosím uspesné geocachery o peclivé zamaskovaní cache. Je v oblasti slouzící obzvláste na jare a v léte coby oblíbené rejdiste geomudlovských detí i starsí mládeze...



Cache is placed near ruins called Baba in NW part of Prague, above the Vltava river valley. The starting waypoint (in vincinity of St.Mathew church) is at coordinates N50°06.810’ E014°22.710’. There you can find a gate, and beside the gate a white plastic board with opening hours. Find and count together two 3-digit numbers divided by slash (Vinohradska .../...). You will obtain a 3-digit number ABC. Count following numbers:
D = A – 3
E = C – 3
F = A – 1
G = D + A

Go to waypoint 2 at N50°07.BDA’ E014°23.EFG’. There look downward to valley and carefully count circular waste water treatment basins (with blue service bridges). Thus you will obtain 2-digit number M.

Cache can be found at N50°07.[(M × 7) + D]’ E014°23. [(M × 23) - E]’, GPS altitude 241 m. Look for black plastic cylindrical container with a red cover.

The way between waypoint 2 and cache offers magnificent views to NW part of Vltava river valley in Prague.

P.S. Cache site terrain is very slippery when wet or snowy weather, thus good trekking shoes are recommended. For successful geocachers: please, mask carefully the cache hide – the vicinity is a popular geomugger child’s playground and teenager’s picnic area...
