Geocache Description:

This cache is part of the Mountain Man Series. Each cache will require climbing to retrieve. You will need safety equipment and proper knowledge to use such equipment. You are responsible for your own safety and assume all risk involved in geocaching. Do not attempt this cache or any cache that would put you at risk for injury or death.


If you are not comfortable with climbing and are unable to safely make the climb, do not attempt this cache or series. If you do not have a very well trained monkey who can safely retrieve this cache, you may want to find a good Sherpa who might be able to assist you.

Mount Fuji - It has been said that Japan’s Mount Fuji is the world’s most climbed mountain. At 12,388 feet, it is Japan’s tallest summit. It is located on Honshu Island 100 kilometers outside of Tokyo. The official climbing season is during the months of July and August. The view is spectacular with sunrises and sunsets being especially awesome. It is thought that the first ascent was in 663 by an anonymous monk. The summit has been thought of as sacred since ancient times and was forbidden to women until the Meiji Era. Ancient samurai used the base of the mountain as a remote training area, near the present day town of Gotemba. The shogun Minamoto no Yoritomo held yabusame in the area in the early Kamakura period. The first ascent by a foreigner was by Sir Rutherford Alcock in September 1868, from the foot of the mountain to the top in eight hours and three hours for the descent.


White Water Canyon operating hours are 6:30 am until 10:30 pm year-round.

“Congratulations to Zuma, Team Honeybunnies, KSpud, Comkelp, and SBC Crew” for being the first to make the ascent of Mt. Fuji.
