This is a traditional cache placed at the site of a Wellington Bomber crash which happened on Good Friday, 1941. The site is marked with a cross and some debris from the aircraft, now as a geocache site it is accompanied by a model of the Wellington and an Ammo Box containing a log book, copy of the Website information, postcards, toy airplanes and compasses. Although the site is only 1.66 statue miles from Dunree Beach, it is at an elevation of 1,300 feet above sea level through a heavy cover of Heather and rocks. It is adviseable not to go alone and take a mobile phone so you can let someone know when you have completed your journey. You will need to be aware of the tides at Dunree Beach with this link: http://magicseaweed.com/North-Malin-Surf-Report/59/tide/uk/
It is also adviseable not to take children under ten years of age as the climb and descent are very physical. The site was established with the aid of a sixty three year old man and it took one hour and forty five minutes to reach the cache as we made several rest stops.

This may seem like overkill but I truly beleive that you will appreciate each of these intermediate points as you are climbing. If you use a Garmin GPS you can email me and I will send you a route with waypoints. The attached photos illustrate key parts of the climb. Judgement should be used regarding the food and liquids that may be taken on this journey.
