Geocache Description:


Kammarsten är ett enormt flyttblock som är fullt av sprickor och gångar stora nog att krypa igenom. Det ligger alldeles intill vägen, inte långt ifrån Sörmlandsledens etapp 19, hitfört av inlandsisen för ca 20 000 år sedan. Enligt sägnen har det dock gått till på ett helt annat sätt. Det sägs nämligen att det var en jätte, som när han fick se att man hade byggt en kyrka i Gryt, blev så arg att han tog en sten för att kasta på kyrkan. Lyckligtvis missade han målet och sedan den dagen ligger Kammarsten på denna plats.

Parkeringsplats finns vid N 59° 08.071 E 016° 54.524 vilken också är utgångspunkt för Horsbetslet som är en annan cache utefter Sörmlandsleden. Vid parkeringen finns bord med bänkar där man kan avnjuta sin medhavda matsäck.

Kammarsten ansågs förr vara ett tillhåll för rövare så var försiktiga.

 

Kammarsten is an enormous erratic boulder that is filled with cracks and passages big enought to climb trough. It is lokated close to the road, not far from Sörmlandsledens stage 19, moved to this place by the inland ice about 20 000 years ago. By a legend it's been done in a different way. It says that it was a giant who found out that they have built a church in Gryt, then he get so angry that he took up a stone and throw it away towards the church. Fortunately he missed the target and after that day Kammarsten is lokated in this place.

There is a parking place at N 59° 08.071 E 016° 54.524 which also is the starting-point for Horsbetslet that is another cache along Sörmlandsleden. At the parking place there is a picknic table where you can enjoy your picnic hamper that you brought with you.

In former times it was thought that Kammarsten whas a post of retreat for robbers, so please be carefully.
