Day #387 – Monumental Heights

Trad: 5 Earth: 5 Virtual: 1
Walked: 9 miles

Today I set myself the challenge of climbing The Monument in London, to finally log the Virtual cache which is at the top. I haven’t been up the thing in several years, but today looked perfect – lovely weather was promised.

But first, I started my walk from Liverpool Street and picked up information for a Multi I’ve been meaning to do for ages (sadly a DNF today) plus bagging a trio of Earthcaches before I began my climb,

At the bottom, it looks like a long way up!

Finally at the top of the Monument, Virtual Cache in the bag.

That wasn’t it for Earthcaches though, I did another couple after my climb, and also picked up five trads as I was pottering about.

All in all, a tiring but fun day in the Capital.
