Short Multicache close to the Sommerthörl Pass, also suitable for children
von bevema Österreich > Südösterreich > Westliche Obersteiermark
The cache can be easy completed by adults and children in 2-3 hours time as circular hike. But it can also be the start of a highalpine hike, visiting 5 or more summits well over 2000 metres (Lahneck, Glaneck, Kesseleck, Amach Kogel, Gams Kogel, Sonntag Kogel, Pletzen, Grosser Ring Kogel). A good parking place is at N 47° 17,268' E 14° 33,000' . The location can be reached either from Judenburg - Möderbrugg - St. Oswald - direction Gaal or from Knittelfeld - Gaal - direction Sommerthörl, or by feet / by bicycle.
Attention: The area is almost high alpine, you have to expect a quick and unexpected change of weather conditions. You should have warm clothes and adequate rainwear with you.
Stage 1: Heaven is near
N 47° 17,909'
E 14° 33,379'
You are at a consecrated location. The number of wooden runs (Sprossen) at the bell tower (visible from outside) is called A, the number of wooden crosses (X) of the pulpit is called B. The given coordinates should only serve as starting point, the building has to be orbited for counting.
Playful natures could also ring the bell.
Attention: Please don't leave any burning candles when leaving, to avoid the danger of fire hazards !
Stage 2: Over the Top
N2 = N1 - 2*(A*B) - 7
E2 = E1 - 23*A - 2*B - 1
All around the area goes downhill, but nobody wonders at it, under good weather conditions you have a breathtaking view in all directions, Seckauer Alps, Valley of Pöls, Valley of Mur, whatever you like.
The erection date of the cross is called C1, the date of renovation is called C2.
The result of C2 - C1 is called C.
Cache: Close to the Top
N3 = N2 + C - 1
E3 = E2 - ( C + 7 ) / 2
The cache is hidden under a heap of stones. Please use enough stones when hiding it again, so that it is save and not visible.As this cache is also listed at www.geocaching.com, please log there as well. The cache is a deep-freeze box and initially contained: cachenote ( please do not remove)

Sehr schöne Wanderung, am liebsten hätte ich gleich am nächsten Berg ein weiteres Doserl versteckt, aber wir hatten nur eines mit
Und es gibt sie: kurz vor dem Cache aufs GPS starrende Menschen, die KEINE Cacher sind und mit der Frage: "suchst du ein Doserl?" absolut nichts anfangen können ;)

I thought that this cache would deserve at least a secobnd visitor before the winter break. Motivated by the unexpected gorgeous and warm weather (last year we had the first snow at October 25!) and the fact that the nearby Ingeringsee cache has been on my to-do list for quite a while, I decided to gor for this cache today.
It was untypically easy for me to find the right streets/roads to the cache - there was not much choice anyway at the later stages . I was not aware in advance of the fact that the last 3 kilometers (distance as the crow flies) to the suggested starting coordinates are to be drived on an unpaved road the condition of which is bad. I do not appreciate at all driving on such roads, neither does my car. When I arrived at the suggested parking cooordinates, surprisingly many cars were already there - fortunately I met, however, no car on my way up.
Stages 1 and 2 were no surprise to me as their location is regarded as I knew right from the beginning where I was supposed to go to. I arrived at Stage 1 surprisingly fast. I had a short break to take some photographs. The chapel is nice from the outside, the interior was somewhat disappointing to me - what people made of it does not correspond to my taste. I had no difficulties at all to determine the numbers A and B as there was not much choice for objects to be counted. I am not convinced, however, that Pulpit (and the German equivalent Kanzel) are the correct term for the object which BeVeMa refers to. The view was already splendid at Stage 1.
When I arrived at Stage 1, a young family with two girls was resting there. The mother was wishing to walk up to the summit of the Rosenkogel to enjoy the view, the two girls did not seem that enthusiastic about it, but finally they had to join their parents. The family started off before me, but I got ahead of them soon afterwards which surprised me as at least the parents made a very sportive impression and were talking about ski tours. When they arrived at the summit, I had already found the cache.
I was surprised how fast I arrived at Stage 2. The way to the cross did not appear steep to me in contrast to what the cache description is saying. The task at Stage 2 was even simpler than the one at Stage 1. I did not even need to use a piece of paper for the calculation. I had a short rest at the cross to enjoy the view which was breathtaking today! An endless chain of mountains - I have no idea how far the farthest were from my position. At the cross I met a young woman who had a rest there - she was also overwhelmed by the wonderful view today although she knows the area in contrast to me.
At first I was worried that I would not be able to search for the cache due to the presence of people not that far away, but then I found a way to approach the cache from below. Fortunately Ma of BeVeMa has chosen the position of the hideout such that it does not lie too close to the preferred resting places of hikers.
I found the cache instantly. No need to search. It was at the obvious place. The cache box and its contents are in perfect condition. I think that the cache will well survive the winter.
I was back at the car after considerably less than 2 hours despite the fact that I taken several breaks. The most strenous part for me was the drive down to the point where the paved road starts again. I am not at all experienced to drive such roads downhill and needed a lot of concentration.
I was very glad when I had reached again the paved part of the road.
Thanks for this very nice cache which is easy too reach, but yet offers very nice views when the weather is fine as it was today. With the help of a map the cache can also easily found without a GPS, even beginners should be able to succeed, not only experts like Dunja.
