Cliffs of Despair

From Geo Hashing
Jump to: navigation, search

Take this consolation ribbon when the terrain was too steep for you to continue in your pursuit of the geohash. Note that others may come by later with longer ropes, more powerful engines, more mountain climbing expertise or trained mountain goats and achieve the geohash, but you personally continued until it was dangerous or impossible for you to continue up or down a cliff, terminal moraine, volcanic crater, or other geographical grade.

If the impassable barrier is a fence, consider instead the No Trespassing Geohash. If it's a moat, the My Kingdom for a Boat award might be in order.

Mark your failure with this ribbon and move on
