DON'T FORGET: compass, map of trails, flashlight
It's easy to combine this hike with GCK40M (link) if you want
.

parking site:
N = 48° 01.327
E = 016° 03.241

STAGE 1:
N = 48° 01.325
E = 016° 03.161

The shrine's cladding is adorned by some white bells. Take their number for A.

STAGE 2:
N = 48° 01.588
E = 016° 03.520
What do you see in the surrounding area?
chapel --> B=9
farm --> B=7
small hut --> B=5
cratch --> B=3

STAGE 3:
N = 48° 01.793
E = 016° 03.971

The width of the door is 30 m, the height 6 m. The tired tree seemingly belongs to the inventory. Mark down it's number and take the crossfoot for C.

The next stage is 50 m above you - heading there you shouldn't miss to visit the needle.

STAGE 4:
N = 48° 01.770
E = 016° 03.963
There is not much left of the former proud castle - anyhow the view is really great.

Before you enjoy it, stay at the coordinates for a moment and have a look through the angular tube. Which direction can your eyes follow?

If it is: NO --> D = 7
SO --> D = 9
SW --> D = 13
NW --> D = 17

STAGE 5:
N = 48° 01. www --> www = 20*A + 20*B + 20*C + 11*D
E = 016° 03. xxx --> xxx = 30*A + 6*B + 30*C + 19*D
It's easy to say "know how"(German = Gewußt wie), but if you can find a red number, call it E - and you know now where to find the cache.

CACHE:
N = 48° 01. yyy --> yyy = A*D*E + C*E + 4*A
E = 016° 03. zzz --> zzz = B*C*D + 2*C + A/3

Hilfreiches

Letztes Wochenende mit der gesamten Familie begonnen, doch immer wenn wir alle unterwegs sind, ist an Cachen nicht wirklich zu denken. Da heißt es eher den Kindern zureden, damit sie noch ein Stückchen weitergehen. Immerhin haben wir einen schönen Spaziergang im herbstlichen Wald gemacht, aber bei Stage 4 habe ich mich um 90 Grad verschätzt und konnte daher die nächste Station nicht finden. Dank der Hilfe der Owner konnte ich den Fehler beheben und Gewusst wie war gefunden. Den Cache musste ich dann etwas suchen, konnte ihn schlussendlich dann aber finden. In der letzten Woche haben die Bäume übrigens ganz schön viele Blätter verloren. Schöne Runde.

Das Wetter war nicht gerade überragend angesagt, also sollte es ein Cache werden, für den man auch nachmittags nach Ende des Regens starten kann, der aber trotzdem verspricht, abwechslungsreich, interessant und vom T her für Cezanne passend zu sein.

Wir hatten diese Runde schon einmal begonnen, dann aber wegen eines dringenden Nachmittags-Kaffee-und-Kuchen-Termins mittendrin aufgehört. Diesmal erkannten sowohl Cachen, nein danke aka MoritzRababa als auch MoritzRabe bei Stage 3 messerscharf: da waren wir doch schon mal. MoritzRababa bog dann gleich wieder zurück zum Wanderweg Richtung Peilsteinhaus ab, um dort in Ruhe in der Sonne zu sitzen. So konnten wir anderen in Ruhe die Sehenswürdigkeiten des Gebiets erforschen und abwechslungsreichere Steigerl nehmen.

Danach eine kleine Kraxelei zu Stage 4 bei doch sehr lauter Geräuschkulisse durch den sehr starken Wind und schon konnten wir zwei Varianten für Stage 5 ausrechnen. Die wahrscheinlichere Antwort für B führte uns auch gleich zum richtigen Objekt, wo ich zuerst nur etwas anderes entdeckte, von dem ich aber wegen der gründlichen Vorbereitung wusste, dass 'Gewusst wie' nicht weit sein kann.

Die Finalkoordinaten führten uns tadellos zur richtigen Stelle, wo Cezanne den richtigen Griff hatte, MoritzRabe hatte sich zuvor von der Tarnung täuschen lassen.

Danach mussten wir nur noch wieder zum Wanderweg zurück und weiter ging's zum Peilsteinhaus, wo die Eröffnung der Boulderwand vorbereitet wurde. Dort besuchten wir noch den neuen Turm und probierten die Geräte am Spielplatz aus, bevor wir zurück zum Ausgangspunkt gingen und ein paar der Stationen des Erlebniswegs besuchten.

Danke für's Herlocken ins Arnsteingebiet und TFTC

Even though I prefer hiking caches by far to urban caches, I took me until today until I managed to find the first nonurban hiking cache hidden by M.W. I'm now into geocaching for almost eleven years and I first met M.W. almost nine years ago. And even today it was not really a deliberate choice from my side that made me visit this cache. It was raining in Vienna in the morning, but fortunately it stopped to rain and cleared up around lunch time. AnnaMoritz suggested to go to the Peilstein area. She first mentioned something about a relatively new themed trail, then showed me some handwritten notes about this cache and suggested that we we could give it a try. Before leaving she showed me a climbing topo in a book and I really got worried. To comfort me she said that the T-rating is only 3*, but I need to admit that the comforting effect was not that effective.

Anyway, off we went. We parked at the suggested parking lot where Cachen, nein danke aka MoritzRababa realized that he has been there before. The bells at Stage 1 were quickly counted. Stage 2 was more difficult for us. My GPS-r pointed into the forest area. We ended up with writing down two possible solutions, one more likely than the other. Stage 3 was the first highlight of the cache. MoritzRabe convinced AnnaMoritz and myself to explore the location more intensely than I had planned. At some point he noticed a single white stone up on the ceiling where all the neighbouring ones were black and wondered how the white one has got there, but neither AnnaMoritz nor myself could provide him with a reason that convinced him.

While my two companions were able to recognize many climbing routes, I only saw a few isolated pitons. Cachen, nein danke had decided to continue to the Peilstein hut directly and wait there for us.

After the Stage 3 the most challenging part of the cache waited for me. AnnaMoritz suggested to take the direct way up and I agreed, but hoped that I would not need to go down there. While MoritzRabe and AnnaMoritz did not even need to use their hands and walked up as if they were on a walk in a city park, some steps really took me quite some effort and time. Sometimes I needed to change my strategy and try something different as I cannot use my left leg in the same way than my right one. Moreover, the wind was quite strong and made me quite nervous and the noise created by the wind added to the challenge.
Anyway, I managed to reach the ridge. The Arnstein needle is really impressive, but we took care not to get too close due to the strong wind.

Nearby a group of four young people were sitting. Somehow I had the feeling that they looked at me strangely and maybe wondered what someone like me was doing up there, but maybe this was just a result of my sometimes weird thoughts. We continued to Stage 4. I would have liked to know how the area looked like in former times. With the help of a compass I ended up with the same solution for the variable at Stage 4 than the one AnnaMoritz had obtained without using a compass.

While AnnaMoritz and myself computed two candidate locations for Stage 5 (due to two candidate values for B) MoritzRabe took a short rest to eat half of the sausage roll he had brought along and which he was not allowed to eat at the Arnstein needle as the wind was too strong there.

I was glad that for approaching Stage 5 we did not have to pass the group of young people again and I was even more glad that the way to Stage 5 and further on the final was much more harmless than I had suspected it to be. So I could relax. Our first candidate for Stage 5 turned out to be the right one. Stage 5 was the most difficult stage as the reception is a bit jumpy there and as the red number is small. But with the help AnnaMoritz perfect preparation what needed to be found was found quickly and in a way that we were absolutely sure that we were on the right track.

Computing the coordinates of the cache posed no issues and so we could head for the final. Even though I arrived there after MoritzRabe and AnnaMoritz it was finally me who found the cache. Something had attracted my attention and I looked more closely and found the cache. The cache is in good condition. It is hard to believe that this cache has been found only twice before us in 2013. This multi cache is so nice and it is neither long nor at a specially remote place and the T-rating makes it feasible for the majority of cachers. On the one hand I'm happy that such caches still exist and on the other hand I'm sad how much geocaching has changed since its beginnings in Austria.

After having found the cache we continued to the Peilstein hut and took a detour to the traditional there.
Those who have not been up there before, are warmly recommended to go there as well. I was not expecting
the nice view and the rocks in the summit area.

After a short stay at the playground and a visit to the new watchout tower, we went back to car along a part of the themed trail. In this part of our walk we were again joined by Cachen, nein danke.

It was a pleasure for me to find my first non urban M.W. cache. I always like to meet the hiders in person and besides being kind persons they also will always remember me of the golden times of geocaching in Austria.

Thank you to M.W. for hiding this nice cache and for keeping it up for many years. Thank you to AnnaMoritz and MoritzRabe for slowing down considerably in the difficult parts. The weather was better than expected. We did not get wet and at some point even the sun showed up and it was warmer than expected.
I enjoyed this afternoon very much.

Tolle Stages die man bei dieser Wanderung zu sehen bekommt obwohl die Wegfindung zwar teilweise nicht so straight forward war. Sowohl bei Stage 3 als auch Stage 4 einige Zeit verbracht und die Gegend erkundet. Das Ergebnis der Rechnung fuer Stage 5 hat bei mir zwar (bei meinem Kartenmaterial) eine gewisse Unsicherheit hervorgerufen aber schliesslich wurde alles gut. Beim Final doch eine Zeitlang suchen muessen bevor ich die Dose die den Winter tadellos ueberdauert hat schliesslich in Haenden hielt. Anschliessend wie empfohlen und durchaus naheliegend zum Peilstein weitergewandert.
Vielen Dank fuer diesen herausragenden Cache.
