How Geocaching Works

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

Geocache Description:

Hard Knott at 1801ft overlooks the roman fort and road pass of the same name. The nearby Border End is considered to be one the best view points for Upper Eskdale and the Scafell range.

This cache has recently been adopted to prevent it being archived. Obviously these ‘mountain’ caches are harder to maintain than their lowland or urban cousins. They may well be at less risk from thoughtless removal; but they are much more exposed to the ravages of the weather. In order to make a cache owners life more bearable it would be nice if all hill walking cachers would take some responsibility for their maintenance by carrying a small clip lock box, spare log sheet and pencil. If the cache contains wet or damp material please remove it. If the box is not substantial enough then replace it. If it is blowing a hoolie then consider whether you really need to open the box just to sign the log – we’ll all believe you – or take a picture and post it. If for some reason you DNF then please log that – it all helps monitor the cache for us – some caches go for months between visits, especially through the winter months.
