攀登科羅拉多14ers高山~ Mount Sherman (2019.09.14)

Jump!~Mount Sherman (13)
Jump!~Mount Sherman

上週六登山隊多位成員前往歐洲旅遊,固定的週六登山停辦,約集幾位山友前往Fairplay近郊攀登一座14ers~ Mount Sherman;當天阿才一部車乘載6人自行前往,我則和女兒、小孫子Jacob開一部小車前往,兩部車約在Fairplay南邊US-2854 Mile Creek Rd岔路口會合後再開往登山口。

山岳簡介:

Mount Sherman海拔14,036/4,278公尺,是科羅拉多州第46高峰,屬於Mosquito Range;該山大約位在Fairplay Leadville兩市之間,躺臥在另一座14ers Mount Lincoln南邊約8哩處,距其西北的小鎮Leadville7哩之遙。Mount Sherman 是一座緩坡、沒有陡峭地形、山頂又很寬廣平坦的山岳,加上它的連稜也有幾座高度相近的高山,所以遠看很難分辨出來,也因為它的緩坡易爬,大部分有意征服14ers的登山客都把這座山當作入門山岳。

攀登Mount Sherman 較常走的路線有兩條,各有其特色,通常一般登山客都是從東邊經小鎮Fairplay,走 Fourmile Creek Trailhead,即所謂Southwest Ridge Route,從此登山口起登沿途會經過幾個老礦區,單程約2.7/4.32公里,爬升高度約2,100/640公尺,攀登等級Class 2;另一條路線是從西邊經小鎮LeadvilleIowa Gulch Trailhead,即所謂West Slopes Route,單程約2.25/3.6公里,爬升高度約2,150/655公尺,攀登等級Class 2。兩條路線交會於距山頂約一哩處之Mount Sherman南稜,然後沿著維護良好的小徑直達山頂。從Mount Sherman往北走可順登Gemini Peak(13,951)Dyer Mountain(13,855),往南則可攀登Mount Sheridan(13,748),這幾座山都是蠻有名的13ers

鞍部左側是Mount Sheridan,右側是Mount Sherman,在鞍部小休後取右朝北沿著Mount Sherman的西南稜往Mount Sherman爬升。

Mount Sherman的西南稜前段還算好走,路徑也蠻清楚的,只是強烈的西風吹得有點受不了;

稜線上西望科羅拉多第一高峰Mount Elbert和第二高峰Mount Massive,隨著高度的爬升其他幾座14ersLa Plata PeakMissouri MountainMount BelfordMount OxfordMount Harvard等都在西南方一一浮現,此時Tony和小孫子Jacob已一馬當先往山頂爬升。

手拉著女兒的手奮力衝過風口續往山頂爬升。

過了風口後步道轉為在暴露感十足的瘦稜上爬升,崎嶇崢嶸的瘦稜本就不好走,加上強烈的西風狂吹,如稍不小心就有被吹倒甚至跌落斷崖的危險,走來真又吃力又驚險!

Sherman的山頂就像好幾個足球場般寬敞平坦,展望一級棒,Tenmile RangeMosquito RangeSawatch Range、和Front Range14ers不下十來座在此盡收眼底,真正山頂在北端,續往北前進。

此山在2006年我便帶女兒及當時年僅七歲的大孫子Matthew來登此山,一晃就是13年,今天是二度登頂,同樣是帶著女兒及孫子,只是大孫子換為小孫子Jacob;我們在山頂休息用餐、賞景拍照。
