Hello all, the following is a clue to part of a Geocaching hide, and I have no idea where to even begin decoding/deciphering this.

1446352.803320849, 2090214.049957553, 710559.4070961298, 2168963.3678801497, 2239066.443755306, 695420.8556903871, 2496464.922127341, 2490676.8353957552, 690374.2702521848, 1098215.745503121, 2147511.3525692886, 1117993.3297627964, 1162230.8345268413, 2261794.6605942575, 2361996.274516854, 2539031.1793358303, 2361999.5392109863, 1055074.1818926344, 946429.4783820226, 695001.8633008739, 2175979.084719101, 10.011405742821466

I can't offer too much in terms of guidance. It could be a series of words, or perhaps some coordinates (in either N 51° 03.138 W 114° 09.313 or UTM: 11U E 699375 N 5659491).

The clue provided, for what it helps, is "If you are still stumped ask the "Crypt Keeper".

Any guidance would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Tony

I can't help with the decoding, but FYI for anyone attempting to help; I believe the example N 51° 03.138 W 114° 09.313, could also be written as +51° 3' 9.20", -114° 9' 34.75" Tony can you confirm this?
I have done some geocaching in the past and had a blast with it. Is it possible this could be a Multi-Cache?
Welcome to Braingle take a look around, you may just get hooked.

It's not what you know, it's what people think you know.

Thanks Jaycr...

- while I believe your 'translation' so to speak is correct, I don't think that would apply here. The standard formation (for geocaching, anyways) is the original form.
- no, no chance it's a multi-cache. Along with a five degree of difficulty (out of five) for this puzzle, the (single) location apparently is a five as well (a cliff-face, I understand).

Thanks for your time on this,

Tony
