Least Found Cache In The Uk


Recommended Posts

I think the timeframe is important too. There's dozens of caches with few finds - most of them are weeks or less old. I suggest you look for caches over a year old with under 10 finds. Off the top of my head, the UKs oldest cache (Scotland's First) has been around for nearly 5 years, and has very few finds.

Being pedantic I'd say the 3* is correct, but maybe the 4* should be a 5*.

 

After all getting there is the very difficult part whereas the cache is probably fairly easy to find.

 

If the cache is as difficult as a 3* to find I think I'd be massively disappointed to get there and then have to log a DNF !!! :)

Is the getting there the point, it looks like it requires a boat! If every cache was judged by what the ground is like at the cache site; then most would not reach beyond 3 stars. You could of course argue that all caches in Eire are 5 stars to us in the UK as we need a plane ship or car to reach them, but as this location appears to be a sparsely populated island from the Eire main land then 5 stars it should be.

I understand the ratings as follows:

 

Difficulty - finding the actual cache once you've reached the location

 

Terrain - getting to the general cache location.

 

For example a cache placed at the top of a mountain under the summit cairn would be a Difficulty 1* and a Terrain 5* possibly. That's what I meant when I said the 3* was okay (difficulty) but the 4* should be a 5* (terrain) as it requires a boat and a difficult landing.
