登 Green Mountain (Boulder)--2010.08.28)

Green Mountain位在Boulder西邊,是洛磯山脈Front Range的山麓丘陵,海拔8,144呎(2,482公尺),Boulder就依偎在其山腳下。Green Mountain東面的幾片大石壁即是象徵著Boulder的Flatirons, 這兒是攀岩者最喜歡挑戰的場所。

攀登Green Mountain有多條難易不一的路線,若從Chautauqua Park啟登,來回大約6哩,爬升高度約2,500呎(5,680~8,144呎)。當然也可以開車沿Flagstaff Road上山,沿途也有幾個Trailhead可上Green Mountain,距離就縮短了多了。山頂上俯瞰整個Boulder市區和東部大平原,向西則遠眺整個Indian Peaks,是一座老少咸宜的熱門登山路線,今天下午因為要參加一位朋友為他兒子舉辦的生日party,所以我們就走一條最容易的步道—West Ridge Trail。

Green Mountain West Ridge Trail的登山口就在Flagstaff Road的最高點,由此上Green Mountain僅1.4哩(2.24公里)的路程,爬升僅約600呎(183公尺),實在說不上是爬山,就當作是散散步吧!

09:55從登山口(海拔約7,550呎)起登,前面的1.2哩幾乎是起起伏伏的步道沒什麼爬升,直到10:45接Green-Bear Trail的岔路(海拔約7,860呎)後的約1000呎才是較為陡峭且是粗躁的小徑,也只有這一段路稍有點像爬山的樣子,我們於09:55從登山口啟程,登頂時是11:00,用去一小時的時間。

此山我上過無數次,深知另有一私房景點可避開人潮,景點絕佳,就在山頂東北方向一條小徑下切約2~30公尺,有一大塊巨石,或坐或躺在那巨石上,整個Boulder市區一覽無遺,每次來此均少見人影,今天亦復如此,整個巨石就是我們的地盤。

在巨石上休息一陣子後,下山前豆豆和貝貝再爬到山頂巨石上的登頂簽名簿上簽個名作紀念,兩個小子好得意!
