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

Monday, October 3, 2016Alberta, Canada

BCP455 - Corkscrew Mountain

I'm embarrassed to admit how hard it was for me to find this. I mean, the hint is pretty explicit. I clambered all over that little summit area, nothing. I even resorted to calling up the picture in Andronicus' log from 2010, which shows the cap, his boot, his pack (looks identical to mine), and most importantly, the shapes of a few rocks nearby. I walked back to GZ with that picture on the phone display and took note that he'd put his pack down there, suggesting level-ish ground.

Studied the picture, studied the rocks, the picture, the rocks, brushed aside a sprig of bearberry, aha! How could I have missed that?!?

Thanks for another entertaining (/challenging) mountain cap. I'll take all you've got like this.

PS, I found a pretty agreeable route via a small open saddle, so I've added it to OSM.

Finally, revealed!
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
