We came across this cache on our way up Leather Tor for GC4TP72, which in the end we didn't find.

But we did find this cache which was completely water logged. We did sign the log book somewhere on a clean sheet and took a photo of the front page. We can't confirm whether it was in the right place as we hadn't visited the first stage.  It was in a conspicuous place sheltered by a high rock.

I failed at the first stage! I have visited this cache before to get the coordinates for the hide. Today I was back and couldn't spot the micro

Myself and NSCR had a few hours spare this afternoon. As it wasnt a full day, we couldnt go for one of our treks across the moor looking for caches. Instead, NSCR came up with the idea that we head here to clear up this part of the moor.

We made an easy find at Stage 1 noting the co ords for the GS cache and OS cache. We set off to GZ and made a relatively quick find. I took a picture of the bonus info. This is yet another series I have started (I don't think I have found others).

I like Leather Tor. Spent simply ages searching much too high, even as far as the very top, before retreating and taking stock. Eventually spotted what I thought was the spoiler, and pleased to find it was . And the sun even tried to come out as I made my way back .

Very pleased to have got this because it's the last one I need for the bonus cache .

Thanks for the cache,

Rgds, Andy

Still rushing about trying to make the most of our last full day for this visit to Dartmoor .

Found after a brief search on a fine and dry afternoon.

Apologies for the extremely late log - making a determined effort to rectify our lax logging on Opencaches, using geocache logs from our aging Garmin and photographs from our archives if available.

My first open caching cache. Found on a very cold day whilst on a walk around the area. Nice size container. Lovely views from GZ even though there was low cloud and small snow flakes in the air. TFTC

Its been a long time since I have visited one of these caches, I just looked up my profile and this is my 41st find! My last one was June 2011. The cache was quickly found in a great location which I would have enjoyed much more if the weather was nice. Many thanks for the cache.

Enjoyed our walk to this one - fine views to the south. Penty of people on Peek Hill this morning enjoying the sunny day. Did not come directly to this one! But found the easy route eventually. TFTC Left TB

This is our first opencache and this was a tough one. In the fog we went the long way round the tor, so a lot of climbing was involved.  Hunted for about 10 minutes. Needed the hint and spoiler picture. Then Bearded found it where we are sure Mr madBeast looked to begin wth!

Our first opencache find and our sixth cache in the tors challenge. Interesting doesn't quite cover it, more frustrating! With almost no visibility due to fog and seeing from our current position that this cache was almost the other side of the tor, we chose a side to walk round. In the horrible weather we didn't double check the terrain on the GPS and ended up scrambling over rocks for most of the way round. The find wasn't easy either, I think we searched for almost 15 minutes. We were all very much looking forward to being in the car for a bit!

Oh, this opencache account is under our old caching name and I'm not sure how to change it, but we signed the cache as Bearded + The Beast.

Our third opencache, and second to find on this one. Great spot - but very thick mist obliterated the view today. TFTC
