The Gamma Charlie Encryption GC54ZZF – My Cache Hide #4

Having put out a cache I was thinking that the World Cup was coming up and that it must then be 4 years since I put out my last cache before that… so I decided it was time for another puzzle cache, and I decided to make it an impossible one for people to solve.
It is sort of along the lines of Jacaru’s Kryptos cache (find no. #2064) which I am pretty sure I was the only person to solve without a nudge of any sort from anyone else. A combination of two cyphers with a visual twist… that’s similar to the Gamma Charlie Encryption, and I only solved Kryptos by accident !

I can’t really say much more without giving anything away. I have decided that I will give a hint to the cache every month it isn’t solved, just have to work out how cryptic to make the hints !

I will be changing it to a 5/1.5 next time I edit the cache page as although one set of guidelines says don’t worry about the last couple of feet when detting the Terrain rating, other duidelines seem to state it can only be a one star Terrain if you can get it from a wheelchair – and you can’t get the cache from a wheelchair, it is a couple of feet beyond wheelchair range.

Someone has found the cache !
I say found rather than solved because I think they used half a solution and some inspired guesswork (and google streetview) to come up with a possible location that turned out to be correct.
But anyway congratulations to Alister of the Hulleteers for getting the location, to Applepye for actually finding the cache when they got there, and to B:W:R for participating in the FTF visit.
