Found it j2d2 found Brass Cap Cache- Smith-Dorrien Rd (Locked)

Sunday, September 18, 2005Alberta, Canada

N 51° 11.024 W 115° 41.539

BCP109 - Mt. Cory

Well, we said, if nicolo can do this cap, then anyone can. So, off we go - holy cow, is that steep. We picked the right trail at the start so wouldn't go up the wrong rib - not that that would ever happen.

And it keeps on going relentlessly up and up. The day started out cool and clear and as we rose higher the views of the Bow Valley kept getting better. Finally we made the meadow and then pushed up to the cap. (every cap should have it's own log book!).

I think the general consensus among us was that nicolo didn't actually make it to the cap, XRN just signed his name in the log and all those pictures were Photoshopped.

Then we pushed on to try to get to the summit before our time ran out. But the going was too slow over some tough terrain and about 800m from the top we had to turn around. Argh! So close!

We were supposed to bring OFTH along with us, but we all forgot to call him. I'm sure he'll make it up there one day.

Awesome views today. Thanks OFTH.

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
