JAHA - Man of Steel

Add to plan Remove from plan

This sculpture was actually created by a group of local steelworks, led by Charles Zilch, in imitation of the James Wolfe sculptures commissioned for the 100th anniversary of the 1889 Johnstown Flood. This is the only true parking lot micro of the series. The Point of Interest and the overall Discovery Center are ADA accessible. The cache container itself may require assistance.
Do not climb on any of the sculptures featured in this cache series.
If you are enjoying the local history, this cache is located at the Heritage Discovery Center, check here for hours and admission fees - link. There is no fee required to reach this cache location. This is also a good place to start the historic walking tour of Cambria City - link, that features many of the ethnic churches of the community.
This cache may be temporarily disabled and removed during Thunder in the Valley and Flood City Music Festival due to the high concentration of muggles during that period.
Our JAHA series features six cultural and historical sites in Johnstown and has been placed to demonstrate that micros can be an appropriate container size in some urban settings without being pointless lamppost or guardrail caches. If you enjoy this cache series, try our full size caches.
We consider all micros to be difficult, so we’ve rated each of them as we would see them. Other cachers may find them to be much easier. Please replace exactly as found. Do not drop. Some caches in the series will require more stealth than others. Bring your own pen and nano retrieval tools. Just initial the log. DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN LID.
A hint/spoiler can be found by logging on to gmail under the “jaha.man.of.steel” account. Your password will be a combination of the Big Wolfe and Rolling Mill passwords (you’ll need to do those caches first) – “19yyy55xxxa…”. Click on the “Documents” link at the top left of that page. The Cambria County Library, at N40 19.593 W78 55.316, has internet access.
If you spend more time looking for the container than you’ve spent enjoying the setting, you’ve missed the point of this cache.
Any log containing spoilers of location/container will be deleted. Hints are available after a posted DNF if you have already found Big Wolfe and Rolling Mill.
