Mount Sniktau雪地行(2015.10.24)

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

一週來的連日陰雨綿綿,難得今天的大好晴天,本來計畫到Loveland Pass攀登海拔4,093公尺Grizzly Peak,但因繞道Boulder去拍一些艷日下的楓葉耽誤了不少時間,抵達登山口已經十二點多,決定改爬路程較短的Mount SniktauMount Sniktau是位在Loveland Pass山頂東側北邊的一座山頭,海拔13,234 /4,034 公尺,在科羅拉多眾多高山中排名第448名,因為此山沒有困難的地形,路程短,爬升也不高,所以在融雪之後的季節算是一座適合郊遊健行的大眾化路線,蠻受一般遊客的喜愛。
該山在八年前曾帶豆豆去爬過,當年他年僅八歲,爬到13,152峰時距山頂僅剩0.45哩,但因積雪未化而撤退,今天打算攻頂,只要積雪不要太深!
行車資訊:
由丹佛沿I-70州際公路西行,在Exit 216出口下交流道,然後行駛US-6 W上山,行約4.4哩抵達Loveland Pass山頂停車場,此為登山口,海拔11,990(3,655公尺)

步程簡述:
12:20 由公路東側登山口(Loveland Pass)出發上山,積雪蠻多蠻厚的,小心行走。

從登山口到山頂陵線約一哩路,爬升約930(283公尺),也算有點坡度,加上沿路積雪蠻厚的,爬起來有點吃力,四週白茫茫的,若不帶墨鏡眼睛很容易受傷害。

往右()循稜線走前往攀登Grizzly Peak,路程較遠,本來今天規畫攀登該山,但因先去Boulder拍楓葉耽誤不少時間,決定爬備案的路程較短的Mount Sniktau

12,915呎高地先下坡到12,800(3,901公尺)左右開始緩坡往13,152呎高地爬升,積雪越來越厚,深達小腿肚,一路踩著之前登山客留下的足跡前進。

13:50 登抵13,152呎高地(Point 13,152),海拔13,152(4,009公尺)距登山口約1.4(2.24公里)循之前登山客的足跡由西側腰繞而過。

腰繞過13,152呎高地後便可見到Mount Sniktau的山頭矗立在北方偏東的不遠處,但中間隔著一處落差約150呎的低鞍,必須先下到低鞍處再爬升約240呎左右?
