攀登 Mount Silverheels (2010.10.02)

美麗溫馨的傳說

Mount Silverheels 是以19世紀中葉一位舞廳女孩之綽號為名,該女孩是一位在此山西邊的採礦營地Buckskin Joe 舞廳的舞者,她平常喜歡在舞廳裡穿著銀色鞋子而得到這個綽號。
1861年天花流行病侵襲這個採礦營地,大部分的礦工被要求繼續留下來工作,而大部分的婦女和小孩則逃到了丹佛。Silverheels沒有離開,她選擇留了下來,在流行病流行期間她照護她的朋友和鄰居,不久她也染病,後來雖戰勝了病魔,但天花在她美麗的臉上留下了水痘的疤痕,她跑到了她位在Mount Silverheels山腳下的木屋裡,等到疫情過去,劫後餘生的礦工們想集資一些金錢送給這個女孩作為感謝,不久便籌到了5,000美金,等到礦工們把錢送到Silverheels的木屋時,她們發現Silverheels不見了,她的木屋看似無人居住,多數人們相信她是因為天花留下的痘痘斑痕而隱藏起來,這些錢最後不得不又還給礦工,但為了要感謝她就把這座山命名為Mount Silverheels。
幾年後Buckskin Joe因淘金潮消退而沒落,有人聲稱看到一位頭罩黑色面紗的婦人在當年因罹患傳染病身亡者的墳墓上獻上鮮花,直至今日仍有人聲稱看到一位頭罩黑色面紗的婦人在當年因罹患傳染病身亡者的墳墓中徘徊。

攀登Mount Silverheels有South Ridge、Hoosier Pass/Hoosier Ridge/North Spur、Beaver Ridge 和East Ridge 四條路線,此次攀登我走的是從Hoosier Pass南邊二哩處的Beaver Ridge路線。
此山雖然是13ers,但其難度不亞於14ers;科羅拉多的14ers較多人去爬,而且有14ers協會的志工定期維修步道,所以一般而言步道並不難走,反觀部分13ers的高山因較少受到登山客的青睞,步道無人維修,所以其難度相對增高。以此山為例,從登山口開始到登頂,我走在看出是步道的部分不及全程之四分之一,尤其是前半段的一哩路就在松林中摸索前進,毫無路跡,真服了這裡的登山客,也因此,我預定用五到六小時可爬完的行程竟用去了七個半小時,還真有點累。

登山口行車指南:
由I-70州際公路203出口走CO-9公路南下,經Frisco 到 Breckenridge後續循CO-9公路南行,到達Hoosier Pass 高點後續往南行約2哩,路右一大空地停車,登山口在前方約200公尺公路左側。

詳細行程:
08:00 登山口出發,登山口是一條土石路,行沒多久見一私人土地警告牌,右切入松樹林,沿CO-9公路平行走約兩百公尺,見較緩坡處即往左上切,別奢求有路跡,認定東邊方向,矇頭往上爬就是。途中遇一兩處越野摩托車車道,別理會,續往上切。

下切,茂密的Willow 樹叢很難搞定,費了好一段時間才殺出重圍下到小溪邊。

12:25 累得像隻狗似地登上山頂,這個時節爬山實在不是時候,山頂無雪(
今年反常,往年此時山頂已是白雪靄靄),步道無花,亂枯燥無味的!

13:00 山頂好冷,穿了一件排汗衫、一件中層衣外加羽毛衣,還得躲在避風石堆裡,不宜久留,下山。
