It's not always about difficulty.....our first attempt was a miss but we were literally brand new boxers. Went back a year later with some more experience under our belts, realized our mistakes and then found the box with no difficulty

This serves as good reminder to all, especially for those who are new, not to be too quick to record an attempt. It should only be done when you’re relatively certain that you solved, understood, and followed the clue correctly, and that you’ve searched the right spot thoroughly. If you’re in doubt about any of that, message the planter and see if they will give you a hint where you went wrong, instead of assuming it’s gone.
