This multicache is starting outside the railway-station in the center of Røros. The coordinates related to this cache will bring you here.

In Hamar there is a cache called "Pretty Small Park". That cache gave me the idea for this cache "Sculptures in Røros" ( thank you, Erling ).

Ok, now to "Sculptures in Røros": Outside the railway-station you will find a sculpture of Johan Falkberget, one of the most important norwegian writers, who worked and lived in this area. The sculpture is made by Sivert Donali. Observe the sculpture and find the answers:

1. The year of Johan Falkbergets death. = XXXX =A

2. The year of Johan Falkbergets birth. = XXXX =B

Calculate the coordinates to the next sculpture by using this formula:

N-62°34.[ ( A-B ) + ( B-1289 ) ]E-011°23.[ 4219 - ( B+B ) ]

Hopefully these coordinates will bring you to the next sculpture, made by Skule Waksvik.Observe the sculpture and find the answers:

1. The year Skule Waksvik started working on this sculpture. =XXXX = C

2. The year Skule Waksvik finished tis sculpture. =XXXX = D

3. The sculpture is a gift from Røros Sparebank. How old was the bank the year this sculpture was finished? = XXX = E

Calculate the coordinates to the next sculpture by using this formula:

N-62°34.[ ( D-C ) + ( 876-E ) ]E-011°22. [ ( Ex7 ) + 16 ]

Also the next sculpture is made by Skule Waksvik.Again: Observe and calculate:

1. This sculpture is a gift - given from many companies. How many? = X = F

2. The year Skule Waksvik finished this sculpture. = XXXX = G

3. How many years old was the city Røros the year this sculpture was finished? = XXXX = H

Caclculate the coordinates to the MAIN CACHE ( micro-cache ) by using this formula:

N-62°34. [ ( Fx56 ) + 2 ]E-011°22. [ ( G/2 ) - 19 ]
