Another great day with the San Diego Cache Event Team
We took a more westerly angle to the approach, but still had to navigate around the boulders as we neared the top. I took a route around the top and when I came around the corner after climbing between some tumbled boulders, I could see the Toby's Gang, TrailGators, and dugnarm already on the top. TFTC was still down below the treacherous access and neither he, nor the other guys, were anxious for me to climb up there. However, it wasn't any worse than what we encountered on "Lawson 4," so I went for it.
Once on top, I declined to attempt getting to the actual cache location. duganrm was the only one of our group who did leap over there and back . . . several times. He is absolutely fearless . . . and I think the soles of his boots must have some extra sticky stuff on them.
We took pictures of the Jeep TB
and the cloudy view
before heading back down the boulder-strewn slope. By the time we got to the bottom, most of us bore black marks from the burned branches of shrubs that are beginning their recovery from the horrific conflagration that burned so many thousands of acres in October, 2003.
The cache is only half a mile from the parking area at the end of the cul-de-sac whre we parked.
We covered 2.4 miles to get up and back down from it . . .
