Hindby junction, eastern outskirts of Malmö.
Go there in the morning (around nine o'clock).
Uncertain about this though. It's rated to be 4.5 in terrain!
I estimated a 90% chance of reaching today’s coordinates. The more interesting question was if I could achieve the "Hash collision achievement" by logging the 4.5-terrain rated geocache GC1T7M4 just about 30-40 meters north from the hash. But first things first.
Me and Ms.C got to the Hindby junction about 9.30 am. The general area was a mixture of industrial estate and housing area. The setting of the hash was however overgrown with rose bushes with buildings in very advanced stages of decay. The first attempt to approach to the hash was thwarted by rose shrubs and a bit of marsh. After a flanking movement we found a path that led to the rose bush in which the hash could be registered. I made the usual documentation and left a marker. Now on to the geocache.
The structure where the cache was located, turned out to be a huge advertising sign. It was clearly visible from the hash but it took me some time to locate the actual cache container itself. It was as high up as possible and the terrain rating was not exaggerated. After assessing the situation, I decided to exercise some parental responsibility and sound judgement by not letting my daughter see her father potentially getting badly injured or even die, so and decided to call this achievement a (sad) day...
...but Ms.C found some nice flowers and we went to 55 12 and the Öresund bridge where there is a nice view. After eating some cinnamon buns and bananas and doing some light shopping in Malmö, we went back home.

To go there after work hours. Looks quite easy from a satellite photo.
I went there about 17.15. I almost persuade my colleage to go there with me, but he bailed out. I discovered Fasanen had been there earlier this day! I documented the place and I did not know about the geocache at the sign at that moment. My goal was to reach another geocache on my way home so my stay was short.
