This cache has been archived.

inspicio: One or more of the following has occurred:

No response from the cache owner.
No cache to find or log to sign.
It has been more than 28 days since the last owner note.

As a result I am archiving this cache to keep from continually showing up in search lists and to prevent it from blocking other cache placements.

If you wish to repair/replace/make available the cache sometime in the near future, just contact a reviewer (by email), and assuming it still meets the current

guidelines, the reviewer will be happy to unarchive it.

Should you replace the cache after 28 days has passed please create a new cache listing so it can be reviewed as a new cache.

Geocache Description:

WHILST THE RATS INVITE YOU TO VISIT THIS CACHE, THEY TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR ACTIONS WHEN IN THE AREA OF THIS CACHE. THIS IS AN AWESOME SPOT YET IT CAN BE EXTREMELY DANGEROUS.

The movie called it Picnic at Hanging Rock, the locals call it Baltzer lookout. I'll call it absolutely awesome. This location is one of the most photographed spots in the Blue Mts. Abseilers and rock climbers' shudder with excitement as they contemplate its brilliance.

A 2WD will get you to the locked gate, from here it’s a 4.5km walk or MTB along a fairly flat fire-trail. At the end of the trail you'll have a short walk to the cache area. Please obey all signs as the nearby cliffs are unfenced and the valley floor is approx' 250m below.

Be sure to bring your camera (as I forgot mine). Take the time to enjoy the awesome views.

The cache itself is well hidden and well away from the cliff edge. It contains all the usual goodies including a logbook. Be sure to hide it very well. Please don't attempt this cache at night and its advisable not to bring the geokiddies. Come prepared for all seasons as the mountains weather can be very unpredictable.
The 4.5 star rating for terrain is to highlight the risk associated with the unfenced cliffs that are nearby. The walk out to GZ is fairly easy.
