An unusual reverse Wherigo cache led to a high tree free climb. Not technically difficult as there were plenty of branches, but the height was challenging for me!

Devil's Dyke

A series of caches set in the spectacular environment of the Devil's Dyke on the South Downs, most of which are highly original and amusing. The first one is unusual, but in a different way, so the link takes you to the second cache on the circuit.

Now archived, and the replacement series gets a TOP CACHE too :-) .

T5 Tree-top Challenge

A gruelling, exhausting multi of 5 tree climbs, high and difficult to set up for. Unfortunately the ground was a bit swampy when we were there and we were plagued by midges all day, maybe better in cooler weather. This one is a SERIOUS challenge.

Monkeys Colden Challenge 15

Wizbit100 and myself were tackling the "4 corner challenge" - a D1/T1, a D5/T1, a D1/T5 - and this D5/T5, on the same day, followed by half a dozen more climbs. This was a lot higher than we expected, and the branches were thinner than we expected. It used up most of a whole day's supply of adrenaline even before breakfast, but we got there OK :-) .

Horror Hike

Definitely "a cache for the season" ... found at any other time of year, or in the daytime, they would lose some of the effect, but doing it on Halloween, at night and in the company of a large group of friends was exactly right. For best effect they need to be in good condition, and we were lucky to do them just after they had been maintained. All put together they were a super series, a nice location (not that we saw much of it in the dark and rain), with a good variety of hides, caches and "embellishments" :-) .

Flatcoat Walker Hide #500

On a day that took in a large number of Flatcoat Walker caches, Ten Miles Max suggested we make the short detour to this one. Maybe I should have guessed, but nothing she said prepared me for this one - it was a big surprise, and all the better for it :-) .

Bridge over troubled water?

Not an obvious TOP CACHE maybe, not very high at all, but an unusual placement for a tree climb, one that made us have to think carefully about our approach, and one on which we had a good deal of fun - which is what it's all about :-) .

Stoughton Stumble

For the circuit. A super series - a lovely walk, with good size caches in good hides. The link is to the first one, beside the parking, which is way out of character with the rest of the series and rather lets the side down, but don't be put off by that.

Unfortunately my visit was ended halfway, when both Maisie the GeoSpaniel and myself suffered multiple bee stings, but we will be back to finish it off.
