Description   

Once upon a time, when one-eyed giants played with their marbles in this forest, a brave geo-cacher hid one of his famous caches here.

Park your car near the frontier, e.g. at N 50° 43.293 E 006° 05.424.

Search your way to the forest.

Follow the ancient frontier 'Landgraben' (first mentioned in 1338) to a remarkable point at N 50° 43.213 E 006° 05.694.
There you will find a stone with two different letters and a cipher with the digits xyy.

Do you see the elephants sleeping in the forest?

Continue your walk to N 50° 43.212 E 006° 0y.7y3.

Next to a natural cavity you will find a girl’s name with six DIFFERENT letters carved into the stone.
Assign to the letters the numbers 1 to 6 in the order they appear.
(Example: Word GIANTS yields G=1, I=2, A=3, N=4, T=5, S=6)

The cache is hidden at N 50° 43.(A,2*K,N-R) E 006° 05.(N+A,2*T,I+K)

Gefunden bereits im letzten Jahr

Found 24 June 2017 URilomeo found the geocache

Heute habe ich einen kleinen Abstecher vom Mega in Alsdorf gemacht. Um auch einen belgischen Cache zu besuchen. Die Wahl fiel auf die Zyklopensteine. Das ist schon eine sehr interessante Konstellation, die man hier im Wald vorfindet. Die Stationen konnte ich gut finden. Und nach kurzer Suche konnte ich mich dann auch am Finale ins Logbuch eintragen. Danke für das Herlocken und für den Cache.

Heute stand ein erster Teil des Zyklopenstein-Multis auf dem Programm. Am Weg lag dabei auch das Spiel der Riesen.

Great spot. Reminds me of the Giant's Playground in Namibia. The informations between the boulders were easy to find, but I fooled myself twice by arithmetical errors in the easy formula. ::| Thanks for keeping this old-timer alive.
