Mount Parnassus和Woods Mountain兩山連登記(2015.10.10)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

行車資訊:
由丹佛沿I-70州際公路西行,然後在Exit 218出口下交流道,隨即右後轉彎行駛一條兩三百呎的石子路即抵達Herman Gulch Trailhead,登山口有一處蠻大的停車場,登山口就在停車場的北邊中間位置,此登山口是Herman Gulch TrailWatrous Gulch Trail共用登山口。

攀登山岳:
Mount Parnassus:海拔13,574 (4,137公尺)
Woods Mountain:海拔12,940 (3,944公尺)
登山口Herman Gulch Trailhead(海拔10,300呎/3,139公尺)
總爬升高度:約4,500(1,372公尺)
登山里程:約10(16公里)
登山時間8小時30

★以上紀錄均含走錯路的里程(約2哩)、爬升高度(約600呎)、時間(50分)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
步程簡述:
07:34 由登山口出發,Watrous Gulch TrailMount Machebeuf 的東南側坡往東前進,一開始數百呎的步道在松林中平緩前進,步道維護得很好。

07:40 遇到岔路,左岔步道為Herman Gulch Trail,是通往Herman Lake的步道,右直行才是Watrous Gulch TrailMount Parnassus的正確步道,此處距登山口約400(122公尺),路牌標示已不見,我又因準備工作未紮實,取左走了約一哩多才驚覺有誤,再回頭已延誤了一個小時,多走了兩哩多,爬升約600呎,就當作熱身運動吧!
08:30 回到岔路口左轉,回到正確路線在山腰緩升東行,兩側Aspen葉子大多已掉光。

09:25 遇到小溪Watrous Gulch Creek,跨過橫在小溪上的木板到東岸,右邊不遠處森林中有一座傾頹的木屋或shelter遺址;

步道立即分成兩條,右往東續行為Bard Creek Trail (#83),左往北行是Watrous Gulch Trail(#95),取左北行沿Watrous Gulch前進;此地海拔約11,160(3,402公尺),距登山口約1.5(2.4公里)

Watrous Gulch Trail一路在Watrous Gulch Creek()岸緩慢上行,還算好走;峽谷盡頭右邊山頭是Woods Mountain,右側高山則是Mount Parnassus

回頭南望海拔4,349公尺的Torreys Peak積雪的山頭高高矗立在山谷的另一端。

09:44 眼前出現一條小小的小溪,小溪之前有不太明顯的岔路,主路徑過小溪往西北續行,右側那條不明顯的岔路入林往東北行,這是登山的路徑,小心辨認,否則容易錯過,取右入林;此地海拔約11,600(3,536公尺),距登山口約2.2(3.52公里)
入林以後見幾處營地及石頭堆砌圍成用以生火的火堆,山徑很陡,還好地面乾燥,要是積雪未化肯定不好走。
09:50 出森林線,已在Woods Mountain的山腳下,左側的山頭是Woods Mountain,她的山坡好多獨特的奇形怪狀的石柱;右側的山頭是Mount Parnassus

眼前一大片的空曠草原坡,有一條還算清晰的路徑朝東北通往Woods MountainMount Parnassus之間的鞍部,沿著小徑上攀,有點吃力。

10:45 上抵Woods MountainMount Parnassus之間的鞍部,此處海拔約12,500(3,810公尺),距登山口約2.8(4.48公里);右側(東南)Mount Parnassus,左側(西北)Woods Mountain

今天打算先攀登Mount Parnassus,從鞍部到Mount Parnassus山頂距離約0.8(1.28公里)還有1,075(328公尺)的高度要爬升,看起來坡度蠻陡的;整個諾大的坡面無路跡可依循,只能抓準方向往上爬,距山頂約兩三百呎以上則覆蓋不少的殘雪,但無礙通行。
