Geocache Description:

Available in winter / Tilgjengelig også om vinteren.

A small, black plastic canister, attached to a band. Containing a combined log and info sheet.
/ En liten rund, svart plastbeholder festet til et bånd.

The cache is placed on the hill Øyangsrøysa, 650 meters above sea-level. This hill has for centuries been an important knot of borders, and still a lot of old and existing border cairns can be seen on its back.

/ Ligger på kollen Øyangsrøysa, 650 moh, med fint utsyn nordover. Øyangsrøysa har langt tilbake i tid vært grensepunkt på Krokskogen, og cachen er plassert ved en gammel røys med bolt som fremdeles er grense: Mellom Norderhov og Haug kirkesogn. Men det finnes flere røyser på åsryggen, bl.a. med et Leuch- (L-)merke.
