今天和一位台灣來的小女孩(該稱小姐比較有禮貌) Chloe一起去攀登Tenmile Range一座13er~Father Dyer Peak,我們走最驚險的路線~East Ridge,然後硬切400公尺的岩石陡下坡抵Upper Crystal LakeLower Crystal Lake回登山口,走了一趟小O形環走,也見識到台灣小女孩的體力和膽識!

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

登山里程:往返合計8.7/14公里

總爬升高度3,451/1,052公尺

登山時間9小時

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

行車資訊:

由丹佛沿I-70州際公路西行,過了Dillon不久由Exit 203出口下交流道,經過Frisco後沿US-9號公路南下,路過 Breckenridge後於最後一個交通號誌(US-9Boreas Pass Road交叉口)算起,約2.4哩經過公路左側已乾涸的小湖 Goose Pasture Tarn後右轉Spruce Creek Road (CR 800),再沿Spruce Creek Road 行約1.2哩抵Spruce Creek Trailhead停車場,座標N39.43697° W106.05070°,海拔10,400/3,170公尺,Chloe已在停車處等候,稍作整裝後起登。

步程簡述:

06:45 登山口出發,沿著凹凸不平的Crystal Creek Road朝西上山。

06:51 Spruce Creek RoadCrystal Creek Road 岔路,座標N39.43585° W106.05396°,海拔10,423/3,177公尺,距登山口0.2/0.32公里;取右岔Crystal Creek Road續行。

Crystal Creek Road行不遠路況轉為極差的陡上坡,如非性能極佳的越野車或吉普車很難克服此地形。

07:35 抵一岔路,座標N39.43758° W106.07161°,海拔11,218/3,419公尺,距登山口1.2/1.93公里;

左岔有鐵柵門的岔路是由Spruce Creek RoadFrancie's Hut High Parking Lot上來的岔路,續取右岔直上。

07:37 右岔路往Francie's Cabin 不取,座標N39.43727° W106.07228°,海拔11,257/3,431公尺,距登山口1.3/2.09公里;

此處已出森林線,即將進入Crystal Creek谷地,取左直行。

07:45 左右各有一小岔路,座標N39.43765° W106.07444°,海拔11,388/3,471公尺,距登山口1.4/2.25公里;

左岔路也是由Spruce Creek RoadFrancie's Hut High Parking Lot上來的岔路,右岔是Wheeler Trail,西邊山谷遠處可見Crystal PeakFather Dyer Peak尖聳的山頭,取中吉普車道直行上山。

步道行經一段緩平的草原後進入大片的Willows谷地,運氣好的話應可遇見moose,但今天沒遇見。

07:55 吉普車道積水路段,座標N39.43794° W106.07832°,海拔11,477/3,498公尺,距登山口1.7/2.74公里;取右切入Willows叢中小徑,隨即遇到Crystal Creek,小溪上橫置幾根原木方便登山客渡溪;

渡過小溪後隨即又接上Crystal Creek Road繼續上行。

過了Crystal CreekCrystal Creek Road又轉為陡上坡,這段路路況也極差,開車也不太好走。

08:21 抵達Lower Crystal Lake出水口附近岔路,座標N39.43604° W106.08870°,海拔11,950/3,642公尺,距登山口2.3/3.7公里;

左岔是Father Dyer Peak東稜(East Ridge)稜線路,右岔通往Upper Crystal Lake,我們取左岔沿Lower Crystal Lake東岸上行,沿途俯瞰Lower Crystal Lake全貌。

08:35 抵一大片岩瀑下端,座標N39.43323° W106.09011°,海拔12,135/3,699公尺,距登山口2.6/4.18公里;

左側有車道上行勿取,應取右岔岩瀑下端不明顯小徑往東稜左側山谷方向西南行,我們一開始誤取左岔車道上行,發現錯誤後再修正回正確路徑。

09:03 抵達Father Dyer Peak東稜南側山谷,座標N39.43151° W106.09191°,海拔12,246/3,733公尺;在此開始轉向西北朝右上方高處往上陡峭爬升,由此山腳到登上東稜稜線的近500公尺、爬升378/115公尺的爬坡路段是一段陡峭、幾乎找不到明顯路跡的苔原寬稜,如無航跡輔佐掌握儘量朝右上方安全的地形爬升即可。

09:37 登上Father Dyer Peak東稜稜線,座標N39.43255° W106.09461°,海拔12,630/3,850公尺;

在此稜線上右側俯瞰Lower Crystal Lake,右邊山頭即是海拔13,640/4,157公尺的Peak 10,正前西方尖聳的山頭是Father Dyer Peak東北稜上的Point 13,585 ft.,而此尖聳山頭左後方的小突出山頭即是Father Dyer Peak,先沿東稜行一小段路後抵達陡峭稜線下方,座標N39.43234° W106.09526°,海拔12,647/3,855公尺。

09:41 由陡峭稜線下方沿此稜線陡峭上攀,陡峭稜線初段雖然陡峭但還算寬敞,類似在寬稜的岩堆中爬升。

10:30 危險瘦稜,座標N39.43249° W106.09845°,海拔13,037/3,974公尺,小心由瘦稜上危岩攀越。

10:40 正前方猙獰巨岩難穿越,取右岩壁小心下切腰繞而過,座標N39.43243° W106.09914°,海拔13,123/4,000公尺。

10:50 大抵攀越過危險稜線路段,仰望前方山頭雖然仍陡峭,但似乎已無危險瘦稜,此處座標N39.43245° W106.09956°,海拔13,172/4,015公尺,此時越過左邊稜線已可遙見海拔14,265/4,348公尺Quandary Peak,透過鏡頭拉近一看山頭上盡是幢幢人影;

12:00 登頂Father Dyer Peak,座標N39.43108° W106.10484°,海拔13,615 / 4,150 公尺,山頂岩石上嵌有一面為了紀念REV. John L. Dyer以及“Father Dyer United Methodist Church”百週年的紀念碑;

12:45 在山頂休息用餐後下山,本想連稜順走Crystal Peak,但恐時間太晚怕遇上雷雨而作罷;若循原路下山則因東稜太陡峭危險性較高,當下決定由Father Dyer Peak北面岩石坡直接下切到Upper Crystal Lake,再沿Crystal Lake Trail走一Loop下山。

沿Father Dyer PeakCrystal Peak間稜線朝西下行,行約30公尺取右下切有點陡峭的岩石坡,抓準Father Dyer Peak西岸步道盡頭為目標,岩石坡雖陡峭無路跡,但還不太難走。
