name the sleeping giant,

find his home,

in "pain".

Hint 1:

T°,ř1q decimal degrees, 6°B'Q".4 deg/min/sec This I think is too hard, I meant character map needs to be used for this section.

Hint 2:

Sleeping giant is a mountain, Sleafar's 1st, 2nd and 3rd parts are correct. You guys can move on from that point.

    $\begingroup$ Fun fact: 16° 88' 45.5024" N 179° 64' 69.1259" E is in Warendorf, Germany. $\endgroup$ – Tweakimp Dec 21 '17 at 8:17

    $\begingroup$ Hm, I took the → to imply east, which put me right in the middle of the Pacific! :-) $\endgroup$ – Phylyp Dec 21 '17 at 8:27

    $\begingroup$ @Tweakimp It's B64 (a regional road) which is shown in Warendorf, not 16° 88' 45.5024" N 179° 64' 69.1259. And, btw N179° is not possible at all. $\endgroup$ – zagad Dec 21 '17 at 9:57
  • $\begingroup$ With Hint1, and using a character map the values for the coordinates become T°,ř1q = 54.34549113º (in decimal degrees) and 6°B'Q" = 54º66'81" (in degrees/minutes/seconds) $\endgroup$ – usernameiwantedwasalreadytaken Jan 24 '18 at 13:23

Partial answer

Part 1


Start reading at the letter bottom left, then go up, right, down, right and repeat. Then you get the following hint (which was obvious anyway):

first parts on map second part is md5

Part 2


Nothing I tried with this delivered something meaningful. Because of the °, ' and " they appear to be coordinates.

Part 3


These are obviously MD5 hashes. It is not possible to reverse the algorithm to find out what was hashed here, however we can find matching hashes for 2 words using Google:

octans (not sure what is meant here, it could mean to convert data in part 2 to octal notation, but as stated there I didn't get anything meaningful)
occasus (Latin for west)

Part 4


These could be coordinates as well, or maybe a point relative to that in part 2.

Part 5

No idea if this is anywhere close, but there is a Sleeping giant in Spain.
