BCP531 Mount Inflexible
Sleepy_Hollow mentioned it in his log for this cap. It was an excellent day to do this hike. We started at sunrise and made quick work of the hike to Kent North. From there on we traversed the ridge between Kent and Inflexible and our speed went from flying to crawling. One hour after leaving the summit of Kent North we were only 200 meters away from the summit. It took us 6.5 hours to complete the traverse and make our way up the summit of Inflexible. The views from up here are beautiful and I was glad I had reception and could make a phone call to my wife. Just to let her know we would not be back before dark. The descent from Inflexible along the ridge and into the valley north of the ridge back to the car took another 4.5 hours which made the total travel time 15.5 hours with a total distance of 14 km. This was the hardest scramble I've ever done and we concluded that the mountain is aptly named. You won't get any flexibility from this mountain!

Thanks for the cap and the adventure!

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 Waymarking.com.
