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

Friday, 20 November 2009Alberta, Canada

BCP455 Corkscrew Mountain
N51° 59.592’ W115° 18.170’

J2d2 and I travelled up to Corkscrew Mountain today to partake of a little capping/caching wilderness adventure. We parked at the recommended spot and headed up on the right side of the drainage and soon arrived, somewhat sweaty, at a nice open ridge that connected to the main summit ridge. We stopped here for a few minutes to enjoy the views and catch our breath, that is one steep climb! We continued up the ridge to the cap, with one stop along the way to grab Sleepy hollows cache. The west views are somewhat limited but still very nice, to the east you can see forever. We took a few photos before heading over to Sleepy hollows second cache and then descended the mountain by a very steep but good route that delivered us back to the bottom a few hundred meters north of the new cache on the road. It was a good day in the mountains with great weather and company, thanks for posting this high cap ofth, it was a challenge!

The cap numbers are hidden by j2d2 doing his victory salute.

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
