Geocache Description:

35% small road, 65% trail with steep sections on each. About a 1 km hike. Most of the clues stem from the wooden cross. This is a keychain-only and lanyard cache, so don't forget yours. 35% de petite route, 65% de chemin avec quelques parties assez raides. Environ 1 km. La plupart des indices part d’un croix en bois. C'est un cache porte-clef et/ou cordon.

Park at N 45 53.225 and E 006 10.763 along the cement wall. Follow road to a trailhead. Continue along a trail until you come to a wooden cross. Put your back flat against the cross, facing the lake. Take the number of trees directly behind you and put it to the power of the number of trees in the cluster in front of you. Divide that number by the number of painted colors on trees and rocks visible along the trail as you follow it to the north of the cross. Stop counting when you get to a rock that has all of the painted colors seen since leaving the cross. Now add to this result the number of arrows on the signs nearby divided by 8. Remember this as x.
Look for the closest rock with numbers on it and take the sum of its digits. Multiply that by two. Remember this as y With your back to the cross, your nose is at 12:00 on a horizontal clock.
Now use x as a horizontal clock direction and walk y paces to find the cache!

Original contents:

- ActiveEurope.com lanyard
- Vibram sole keychain
- Foam cycle helmet "aerogo" keychain
- Logbook, pencil, and sharpener.

Remember, this is a keychain and lanyard only cache!

Garez votre voiture à N 45 53.225 et E 006 10.763 à côté d’un mur en béton. Suivre la route jusqu'au bout et ensuite suivre le chemin. S’arrêter à la croix en bois. Le dos appuyé contre la croix et face au lac, multiplier le nombre d’arbres directement derrière avec nombre des arbres groupés juste devant. Diviser ce résultat par le nombre de couleurs peintes sur les arbres et rochers, visibles en suivant le chemin vers le nord de la croix. Ajouter à ce résultat le nombre de flèches sur les panneaux à proximité, divisé par 8. Retenir ce chiffre comme valeur x.
Chercher un rocher à proximité reconnaissable par les chiffres écrits dessous. Calculer la somme de ces chiffres, diviser par deux. Retenir ce chiffre comme valeur y. Le dos contre la croix, le nez à 12h00 sur une horloge horizontale, prendre la direction de l’heure x et marcher y pas pour trouver la cachette.

Contenu du depart :

- cordon ActiveEurope.com
- porte-clef Vibram sole
- porte-clef Foam cycle helmet "aerogo"

Rappel - Un cache uniquement pour les portes-clefs et les cordons
