攀登Mount Spalding和Gray Wolf Mountain(2007.06.28)


山岳簡介:
Mount Spalding
海拔13,842 呎 ( 4,219公尺),位在14ers--Mount Evans的西北邊;此山的西南邊連接有名的 Sawtooth Ridge,此Sawtooth Ridge即是連接Mount Evans和Mount Bierstadt兩座14ers的山脊。此山若從Summit Lake攀登大概一個小時左右即可登頂,山頂上除了俯瞰Summit Lake之外,幾座14ers近如Mount Evans、Mount Bierstadt,遠如Grays Peak 和Torreys Peak皆盡收眼裡。
Gray Wolf Mountain
海拔13,602呎( 4,146 公尺),此山位在Mount Spalding的北邊,兩山之間隔著一下切約800呎的平坦寬廣的苔原鞍部,山頂渾圓寬平,展望極佳。
登山客將車輛停放在Summit Lake的停車場,沿著Summit Lake的東岸往北走,首先到達Summit Lake北岸的Chicago Lakes Overlook,在此可以俯瞰山谷裡的Chicago Lake,登山口就在岸邊山腳下。

當天一早為了趕到Summit Lake看日出大約3點鐘出發,在I-70州際公路Exit 240由Idaho Springs下交流道改走Mount Evans Scenic Byway 的103公路,5點不到便抵達Summit Lake。山頂氣溫好低,大約華氏35度左右,但高山的早晨實在很美。

看完日出我於7點28分由登山口出發。
Summit Lake湖面仍有浮冰尚未融化湖邊有不少Mountain Goat不畏寒冷的在覓食。

步道在經過Summit Lake的北岸後開始在Mount Spalding的南側坡往上“之”字形攀升,不久到達Mount Spalding東稜的稜線,然後循著稜線朝山頂爬升,我在08:20抵達山頂(海拔13,842 呎 / 4,219公尺),共用去52分鐘,爬升1,000呎(305公尺)。

我在山頂停留二十幾分鐘後沿原路下山,在Mount Spalding東稜的稜線找路跡從北側坡朝Mount SpaldingGray Wolf Mountain兩山間的鞍部下切,於09:08分下達鞍部,與其說是鞍部不如說是一大片高原,此地海拔約13,000呎(3,962公尺)。

稍事休息後朝Gray Wolf Mountain的山頂爬升,這是一段緩升坡,走來輕鬆。途中經過幾次大雪原於09:54分登上山頂(海拔13,602呎 / 4,146 公尺),此時艷陽高照、展望特佳。

我在山頂停留近半個小時下山,下山路線仍朝鞍部下切,到達鞍部後朝Mount Spalding東稜的稜線上攀,抵達稜線後循上山路線下山,我於11:53回到登山口花費4小時25分,輕鬆愉快的行程!
