GSVNoFixedAbode: The Elves have sailed off into the West. Shelob has been vanquished thanks to Sting and a couple of brave little hobbits. The Age of Man has arrived.

And with Man comes rules and regulations, OSH, bureaucracy, and the diminishing of adventure. [:(] Shelob's Hallway is to be closed by the council - they have decided that such an asset shouldn't be used. [:(!]

So with a heavy heart this smelly, muddy, wet, dark, scary tunnel cache is archived.

How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

Start in the light then move into the darkness to find this cache.

The co-ordinates for this cache will take you near the entrance to Shelob's Hallway.

You must then, like Frodo, find the courage to enter this dark, dank, and at times smelly, entrance and proceed approximately 200 paces in from the mouth. At this point you can summon up Galadriel's light to locate the 2ltr black-painted container; just put your lips together and blow. Update: Alas, as the Elves have sailed off into the West, thus has Galadriel's light now faded into darkness.

Important: GUMBOOTS ARE ESSENTIAL, as well as a torch. Unfortunately, over time Orcs have left their waste through here so be careful where you step at all times.

If you wish to proceed further, the hallway ends in Caversham, but that end is even wetter! home page For more information about geocaching in New Zealand,
