Ye Olde Survey Monuments Tribute Adventure by GAGB 10 stages non-sequential
We are featuring this Adventure Lab as one of the stages is in our area at the top of Snowdon. Ye Ole Survey Monuments, YOSM for short, GC45CC, was a travelling Virtual cache owned by outforthehunt. The cache moved around the country, to claim a find you were looking for a specific survey monument, trig point, pillar, surface block, rivet or bolt. Like all travelling caches, this cache was archived by Groundspeak in 2017. At the time, it had 25,076 finds by 3,528 cachers and 651 favourite points. The Adventure Lab takes you to the 10 most visited YOSM locations in Great Britain. This Adventure Lab cache will be an adventure! If you complete all of the stages you will have travelled the length and breadth of Great Britain. Good Luck!
