If so what's the best fun you ave had doing it.
Any caches up a climb that anyone knows of
Best that I can remember!
Done a few up trees. There is a cacher in our area who likes to place them in stream and tunnels and other dodgy places.
Did one in New Zealand that was a capsule in a wall that just looked like a large bolt. It had a bit of paper you could sign!
Mrs The Dog and I geocache, some nice 5-8 mile walks in the cotswolds with several caches on.
The magnetic snail I found was one of my favourites. And the plastic rock with the hollowed out inside.
I do a bit, mostly when out and about in cities looking for something to do.
Nabbed a few in Wales on some peaks as well, Snowdon ones are simple enough to find!
There's a guy near us called Franky84 and he has a handfull of "Extreme" Geocaches.
Me and little Ent have a had great fun finding them.
The first one we did was down a disused mine:
2nd one we did was in a cave in the Ardeche:
Then we did one at the top of the Via Feratta on Rocher St Julien:
He's got one on top of Rocher St Christophe in The Dentelles:
Today's was interesting. We got to where the co-ordinates of the cache took us and we found a tiny box under a stone. In the box was a clue - basically telling us that the co-ordinates were correct but the cache is loctated 100m below us with another clue how to find it. We were on a cliff top! Unfortunately we ran out of daylight so we'll have to go back next week.

Well there's plenty on the top of uk hills so you could do a route or two to get to them. There maybe an issue if a cache was on a "route" that people could be tempted to get without necessary skills etc.
Father in law is keen and has made a load of his own cache's, the best being a custom made hollow log (it's in Eskdale ;-)
I've seen a good one made from a bracket fungus.
There is one on a belay stance part way up Slanting Buttress on Lliwedd, although I have not been there myself. But the location does restrict access to climbers!
it does sound like all good fun.
I am going to take the kids when the weather breaks, any excuse to be outside and excersising with out them even knowing they are.
i live opposite a bridleway so i might stick on down there and watch through my window.
be nice to go on some of the walks where there are a few along the way to hunt out.
but oh where o where to begin lol

There's one off the back of Lliwedd (I think) where the clue says "Under a rock"! It's in the middle of a scree slope, millions of the b*ggers to look under!
There's also a large ammo-box on Little tryfan that my friend dragged me a mile through the bog to get to (he didn't see the footpath alongside!).
There's one half way up a route at the Roaches.
There's one at the top of the Via Ferrata at the end of our road
