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

Saturday, 15 November 2008Alberta, Canada

BCP109 Mount Cory

N51° 11.024’ W115° 41.540’

I started out the day with big plans, a brass cap on Cory, a few Earth Caches in Banff and to finish it off another brass cap at Georgetown. What foolishness, by the time I got back to the car after getting to the brass cap on Cory I could barely walk! My total trip log was 6.5 kms with an elevation gain of 971m, so that elevation was gained in 3.25 kms and that is steep! I was unsure of the route so I ended up using the watershed to the west of the rib I should have been on for the first hour. It felt wrong and I managed to get up on the proper trail with much struggling up extremely steep scree chutes – sure glad I didn’t have to come down that way. The weather was kind of scary also with a huge wind and snow threatening, I almost gave up 3 times but persevered to finally gain my objective. I took me 2 hrs 10 min to get up and 2 hours to get down and I am exhausted.

Thanks for selected this very challenging cap for your cache page ofth, it truly is in a spectacular place!

Getting close - the hard stuff is done!

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
