登頂Ptarmigan Peak (2019.10.05)

Ptarmigan Peak Trailhead (1)
Ptarmigan Peak Trailhead

Ptarmigan Peak位在Silverthorne附近,橫跨Summit CountyGrand County兩郡,海拔12,498/ 3,809公尺,山頂有360度的展望,舉凡Dillon Ranger District範圍內的每一座山頭都一覽無遺。

上週六登山隊前往Silverthorne經由Ptarmigan Peak Trail攀登該山,該山前兩年曾跟登山隊去過兩次,一次由Angler Mountain Trailhead起登後併入Ptarmigan Peak Trail,一次由Ptarmigan Peak Trailhead起登,兩次均僅登抵海拔約11,500/3,505公尺後下撤未登上Ptarmigan Peak;此次我和領隊品菁女士、Tony則堅持登頂,一圓登頂之夢!
