Any caches up a climb that anyone knows of

I do.

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!

In reply to alanlgm: There is one on top of the Old Man of Hoy but because it couldn't be verified by someone locally or the people that placed it cannot maintain it it is not listed on the site. I have bagged that one though.

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:
http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=37e2cae0-6279-4ebb-94c4-51c879ab9b17

Then we did one at the top of the Via Feratta on Rocher St Julien:
http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=c7202388-a1cf-4eef-bdc3-84617202fd76

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 ;-)

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!

In reply to alanlgm:

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!).

In reply to puppythedog: Is that a genuine(official) geocache or just a summit signing book? There was a book there before geocaching was heard of. There are numerous places in the alps with similar books and there used to be one in the cave on Earl of Perth in the Avon Gorge.
