    I have to say, you'd have to be running pretty damned fast and keep your feet moving if you try to climb that tree with snowshoes. Frank might be the one to do it, but, oh darn....the snow is gone. It'll have to wait till next year.....

    Wow! And I thought the "Groleau" hidden at a remote lake in Canada accessible only by float plane was way out of the way! We've enjoyed a lot of Groleau's caches, but I think we'll have to pass on this one, too.

    Default yep

    I am relatively young and relatively crazy and won't try this one without the appropriate gear (that I can't afford). I grew up climbing palm trees and knew that if I could get my arms around the trunk I could probably get it....nope. Short of ropes and gear the only way someone's gonna get this one without the ropes and gear is with an axe or lugging a ladder up the hill.

    ps. I don't condone cutting the tree down to get the cache!!

    Default I have the gear!

    Husquvarna 371! So many trees, so little time.......Actually, if any of you have done Laughing Terry's Whattatree cache you know that but for a busted up foot, he'd do that tree in a heartbeat.
