733Re: Ropes, climbing and geocaching (was : good news, bad news!)
- Jun 2, 2003when I first heard of geocaching, I thought the cache box sounded a
lot like summit cans that you find on top of long alpine climbs.
down in mexico nearly every multipitch climb has a summit can with a
log book, a lighter, pipe and mota. although I don't partake in
illicit drugs (especially 1300 feet off the deck) that seems to be
the norm down there.
however, i once discovered a "flat stanley" placed by an austin
climber with a note attached that he was trying to make his way back
to austin. (variation on the travel bug).
if you decide to hone your climbing skills a couple of my friends
run a climbing school and guide service: www.rock-about.com and
there are a couple caches at enchanted rock if you are bored on your
also, tons of routed on the greenbelt.
