Why this is the Geocache of the Week:

Beginning tomorrow, you can earn your Let’s Get Extreme Geocaching Road Trip ’15 souvenir by finding a D5 or a T5 geocache. Or, if you want to get SUPER EXTREME, you could find a 5/5 geocache like this one. This geocache is located on Mont Blanc, the highest point in Europe and one of the most popular alpine climbs on the continent.

What geocachers have to say:

[translated from German] “A super cache up here, great views safe is our highest cache and I’m pretty proud to have done it! thanks for hiding!” – D Gniesser

“It was our first find after the climbing Mont Blanc (summit). We have decided to look for the caches along the route on our way down. This cache was really great and I liked it very much. I also guess it´s my highest placed cache I´ve ever found. Merci!” – -Iti-

“My 6-th time on MontBlanc and 5-th successful time on the summit! And just first time remember to look for a cache :) It wasnt easy – still a lot of snow, ice. Was looking around, turning rocks for ~15 mins while found it :) Also placed small lithuanian flag to container. Thank you for cache in amazing place!” – Pilypas.lt
