Forrest Fenn’s treasure poem has six stanzas and nine clues.
The 6th stanza:
The sixth stanza contains one comma and two periods, making for two complete sentences.
This stanza appears to contain the last instructions you need to reach the treasure chest (or Stanza 1, perhaps).
So hear me all and listen good, your effort will be...
Why does this stanza get two sentences, when most only get one? Does that mean that there are two important clues hidden within?
Worth the cold seems to be important. Are we getting wet? Going under a waterfall? A glacial cave? A place named after something cold?…
Why do we need to be brave? Do we have to go somewhere dangerous? Probably not. So, is it referring to a famous Indian Chief or warrior?
Is the treasure inside a tree stump? Under a fallen log? Do we need to go into the woods?
Some time in the middle of 2010, wealthy author/collector/archaeologist Forrest Fenn hid a medieval chest filled with gold coins and other valuable artefacts somewhere in the Rocky Mountains for anyone to go and retrieve. He wrote a book called ‘The Thrill of the Chase’, in which he hid clues to help people find the treasure.
Inside the book is a poem which secretly encodes the whereabouts of this treasure chest. If you can solve the puzzle, you can go and collect hundreds of thousands of dollars (if not well over a million) right now!
But, hold your horses! It’s not that easy. Thousands upon thousands of people have tried - with absolutely no luck whatsoever!
Fortunately for you, we’re here to help guide you right to Fenn’s gold!
Hear me all and listen good:
The least important of the six stanzas.
So, the clues in the 6th Stanza are likely only clues that help you find the treasure chest once you are already at the final location (and, to a lesser extent, you could say the same thing about the 5th Stanza as well).
Only important once you’ve solved it all.
