Mt. Fuji, outside of Toyko Japan, reaches 3,776 m (12,388 ft.) into the sky, but is still not immune from the trash found at lower elevations. Geocacher atstgm helped organize an ascent of Mt. Fuji to complete a grueling Cache In Trash Out (CITO) tour.
Armed with garbage bags more than a dozen geocachers started hiking up the tallest mountain in Japan at 11:00am on September 3rd.
They stayed over night at a staging area, then began hiking again in the predawn darkness at 1:30am on the 4th.
The group reached the summit of Mt. Fuji around 5am and began the CITO event by picking up bags full of trash. They also searched for the five geocaches along the route and at the summit. Watch this raw video of the ambition climb.
