I'll have to see if I can find a place a hundred feet up for this one...

OK Jason, time for another cache.

    It may be our land, but It still doesn't get past the rule stating

    the cache was placed.

    Geocaching cannot  encourage people to break rules. That will be
    the death sentence for it.  If we don't like a rule , we need to
    work to get it changed, not encourage people to break it.

        First off, it's NOT MDC land. It is our land managed by the
        MDC. Second, they have a rule that states no climbing.
        Archiving the cache will not stop people from climbing. When I
        was there, 90 percent of the people climbing, and a majority
        were kids, were not cachers. People will climb it because it
        is there. If the MDC was serious about it, they would rope it
        off with signs because anyone approaching from the river would
        not see any signs. I agree it is a CYA. I don't think they are
        interested in enforcing it.

        yeah it is a regulation on MDC land, the regulation is there
        to protect you and MDC from a potential lawsuit from the
        family because of your stupidity.

        I will cast a dissenting vote on this one. Leave it alone!
        Okay, it's not in compliance with MDC regulations (read that
        as the lawyer rule). Note- a regulation is not a law, it's
        usually a CYA. I used to work for the Gummint, I know this.
        This cache has been there since at least 2003. Surely, the
        boys and girls at MDC have noticed, oh ropes and such,
        during this time. Look at the cast of characters that have
        made the climb. It includes most of the SLAGA elite. It's a
        tall rock, it's meant to be climbed by us (well, maybe not
        me, but I would if I could), for cat's sake, kids make the
        climb. It's an oldie, but goodie. Cachers, go for it. The
        Department of Conservation works for you.

        I am a maverick and don’t agree with most laws, regulations,
        rules, and other such nonsense.  As citizens and sovereigns,
        we can and should do most anything we want to do.  As long
        as you’re not hurting someone else, do it.  Of course, if
        you fall and break your neck, it’s your dime.  Don’t expect
        me and everyone else to pay your way.

        Two separate needs archived logs and nothing has been done?


        You can't go after this cache legally, but it's still
        listed? I don't understand. Is there something behind the
        scenes for which I am unaware?
