Found it RedRouge found Brass Cap Cache- Smith-Dorrien Rd (Locked)

Sunday, July 15, 2007Alberta, Canada

N 50° 26.424 W 114° 38.984

BCP239 Mount Head

Mount Head has been on my “to do” list since OFTH posted the brass cap last summer. Sleepy Hollow then e-mailed me asking if I was interested in giving this a shot. “Absolutely I replied, but I’m a little nervous with exposure”.

Well we planned for an early start and we were at the trail head by sunrise. Several kilometers later (approximately 6 kms) and we are at the beginning of our climb. We gained elevation quickly, skirted the infamous crux and proceeded up the ridge. We then circumvented the false peaks on route to the summit. Between Red90’s and Reasticks track log and the new Scrambles book our route upward was fairly straight forward. We finally submitted around noon.

A quick lunch and several photos later we began our trip down. We decided to do a short cut and proceeded down a very steep scree slope to a creek bed. The next 2.5 kms was very slow going as we did “extreme’ bushwhacking. We finally reached the main trail leading to the car, a mere 6 kms away.

This trip was very challenging, tiring but rewarding, an excellent day. Round trip distance, greater than 20 kilometres! The pain is setting in, 24 hours later.

infoA virtual cache is a cache that exists in a form of a location. Depending on the cache "hider," a virtual cache could be to answer a question about a location, an interesting spot, a task, etc. The reward for these caches is the location itself and sharing information about your visit.

Because of the nature of these geocaches, you must actually visit the location and acquire the coordinates there before you can post. In addition, although many locations are interesting, a virtual cache should be out of the ordinary enough to warrant logging a visit.

Virtuals are now considered waymarks on
