Geocache Description:

This cache will lead you to the summit of the Hochobir, with 2142 m one of the
highest mountains in the 'Karawanken'. From the summit you have a nice view
over the 'Drautal', Klagenfurt and the Lake Woerthersee.
You may also see the Dobratsch and the Triglav, King of the Julian Alps.

Distance from hut to summit: about 4.5 km / 2.8 miles
Duration up/down: 90 min/60 min
Height difference: 587 m / 1925 ft

The tour is also suitable for beginners although I strongly suggest
to wear hikingboots.

The coordinates in the header are those of the 'Eisenkapplerhuette'.
A tarmac-road is leading from 'Bad Eisenkappel' over a small toll-station
up to 1555 m above sealevel.

Proceed to following coords (summit) to a plate with some dates on it:
N1: 46 30.369
E1: 14 29.235

A = Year(death)-Year(birth) of the man whose name is on this plate.

N2 = N1 - A + 3
E2 = E1 + 3

There is no special clue in it. I kept the calculation simple because
the maintask is not to look for the cache or solve hard riddles
but to enjoy the hike and the view.

I would suggest to visit the Waterfall of Wildenstein afterwards!
With 54 m / 177 ft this fall is said to be the highest freefalling waterfall in Europe!
