What an increadible climb! Me and my friend Jimmy made this climb togeather. We left Calgary at 5:55AM, and got started up the mountian at 8:10AM. Although this was a very steep climb, this was super fun. We took a wrong turn on the first band of rock cliffs and had to double back. The scramble up the gully was a little tricky, but not too much so. We took tones of pictures, and managed to update Facebook (Jimmy, not me; I don't do Facebook) from the summit. Got the cap (super easy one), the summit log, the summit cache, and the cache at the tree line (FTF, nice). The way down was a lot easyer, but harder on my body. Skiing down the skree was a blast. We got some motivational poster style pics on one of the large rock upcroppings.

We met 10 other climbers (plus a dog) either at the summit, or on the way back down. One of the climbers was at least 60, and way faster than us. Made me think that I could get in better shape. Man was I happy to be on flat land again when we got to the car.

Oh ya, I almost forgot. Here is a link to my GPS track log. http://gpsed.com/track/3125705754541994136 It doesn't have the whole trip down, but all the tricky parts.

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 Waymarking.com.
