Write note hunthikers posted a note for Brass Cap Cache - A Memorial Puzzle

Sunday, September 3, 2017Alberta, Canada

BCP665 Wind Mountain
[FOUND] Out with Winkelried today to scramble Wind Mtn for the summit cap and cache.
We met at the car pool at 5:30, drove W to Ribbon Creek. We were on our way by 6:25am. Trails were in good shape, recent work has been done on the Memorial lakes trail including trail rerouting and new bridges. Above the waterfall, we found the turn R that picked up the good trail that takes you into the upper valley S of Wind mtn. From there scree and ribs facilitated our progress to the obvious cave in the yellow cliff. From there we went climber left of the cave up a groove then onto scree towards the ridge proper and the summit slabs. A change of footwear and we were on the slabs. Above the slabs more scree to the small steep summit and the cap. 11:50am. After R&R and caching we headed down find good scree to descend and worked our way through the cliffs and down down down.... in the alpine meadows we found a sheep skeleton (skull, horns, spine to pelvis all still connected and two legs....
We were back at Ribbon Creek by 4:05. A great adventure in great company!

infoA Mystery Cache is the “catch-all” of cache types, this form of cache can involve complicated puzzles you will first need to solve to determine the coordinates. The only commonality of this cache type is that the coordinates listed are not of the actual cache location but a general reference point, such as a nearby parking location. Due to the increasing creativity of geocaching this becomes the staging ground for new and unique challenges.
