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

Saturday, August 29, 2009Alberta, Canada

BCP123: Table Mountain

This cap has been on my wish list ever since the first tme I saw the pictures of the cliff faces featured so prominently on the Brass Cap page. It was a good solid climb to get here, the GPSr showed a trip to the cap of 5.5km with slightly more than 800m of total elevation gain.

BearGPS and I elected to not follow the route laid out on the Calgary -- oops, I mean Southern Alberta Trail Maps for the trip up as neither of them looked particularily promising. Instead we opted to follow the well marked path around the back and then up the side of the canyon wall. It was a good slog, but nothing as difficult as where the trail maps wants to take us,.

Simply one of the best caps I have ever done. The hike had a little of everything: gentle forest walk, steep climbs over rocks, alpine meadows, a herd of mountain sheep and a coujple of other caches as well. Our round trip time was about 5.5 hours -- 3.5 hours up (with caching and lunch break) and just two hous down. A great late summer day for a mountain climb!

Might just be the most scenic cap I have done yet,

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
