Below Above decryption
« on: December 30, 2013, 02:53:47 pm »
Hello

I am new to this forum but have been geocaching since 2011 mostly on my own as I don't know many people who like long hikes in remote places coupled to geocaching. I am currently looking at the Below Above series of caches starting with the Ugly Duckling, I have a small group of who are mixture of cavers and non-cavers who are up for coming along plus I have a guide of the relevant quarry.

 I am having a few problems trying to decipher the code for the route. I have tried the Caesar cipher and Playfair cipher separately and also tried rotating 1st with the Caesar and applying the Playfair as I think it is double scrambled. I have tried a few different keys as well but nothing is coming up trumps. Has anyone got any ideas at all? If I cannot decipher I will probably go underground anyway as its an interesting feature, but it will always be niggling me that there is a cache somewhere close!

I found this cache the other day, as well as some other Below Above's  :) We  both enjoyed the day, and I'm eager to find more  :D

Everything you need is on the cache page. The cipher I used, which worked, is Braingle Keyword Cipher.

You may also want to join the Cotswold Caching where the Below Above cache owner can give you a hand  :) (he's not a member on this forum)

Good luck!

Thanks Griff

I am already a member of the Cotswold cachers forum and have been following their recent posts. Unfortunately I keep missing events.
