BCP455 - Corkscrew Mountain
We (Strider's Ride, reastick, Daddy RedRouge, and I) got our usual early start this morning and ended up needing the headlamps for the first ten to fifteen minutes of our trek to the top. We ended up following a pretty decent drainage / game trail to the top. Fortunately, there wasn't too much blow down, just enough to keep you alert. A few hundred metres from the cap site we ran into a few inches of snow, but were easily able to follow the ridge to the cap site. The cap site is in a fine location, directly at the end of a rocky outcrop at the summit with a significant drop to the east. There were outstanding views to the north and east from this very unique summit.
The trek back to the car found us taking a bit of detour, as the poor GPS reception had us going in the wrong direction. Daddy RedRouge, exploring a little further down the trail, pointed out the correct descent ridge which we followed to the vehicle. It was a fine outing on the lesser travelled trail - thanks OFTH for this nicely positioned cap and to my fellow cachers for the exceptional company.
