四登Flattop Mountain和首登Taylor Peak(2007.06.19)

 

該山我在2002年上過一次,2005年上過兩次,一次剛登頂就遇到落磯山脈有名又恐佈的Thunderstorm,又是閃電、又是雷擊、加上大如一元硬幣的冰雹,嚇得我躲在一塊大石頭底下,待天稍放晴,一口氣衝到山下;一次大好天氣,我上了Flattop山頂後,順登Hallett Peak ( 12713 ft / 3875 m ),然後沿著Tonahutu Creek Trail往北走了好長一段路。去年(2007)夏天又動了上Flattop的念頭,這次打算從Flattop的山頂往南沿著美國大陸落磯山脈分水嶺(Continental Divide)腰繞Hallett Peak Otis Peak ,再攀登Taylor Peak(13153 ft / 4009 m),也利用此機會踏著殘雪欣賞高山雪景。

 

2007619日天亮由家裡出發,七點半抵Bear lake(1.5小時),欣賞一下湖光山色後,07:40 Bear lake Trailhead(海拔9475呎/2888公尺)起登,清晨的山徑特別清新舒爽。

09:20 穿過森林線,陽光很強,但溫度很低,凍的手指發麻。Longs Peak如帝王般矗立在南邊;Mummy Range則如長城般橫亙北方。

10:29 抵達一處拴馬架(Horse hitching rack,此山可騎馬上山,但必需將馬拴於此)。此處有一石堆Shelter,可避強風,在此休息。見一群登山客穿過雪坡正要下山。

此冰河是在大約1300015000年前的冰河時期,大約500英尺 厚度的冰層慢慢往下移動,漸漸切割出的一個U字型山谷,也是目前在Bear lake區大大小小的湖泊所見的主要背景。

 

 

續往南行

11:37 腰繞Hallett Peak,此山兩年前已上去過,今天不登頂,目標Taylor Peak。在此遠眺Longs Peak見其雄偉。

再此遇到一位登山客剛由Andrews glacier底部循Andrews glacier爬上來,我問他像我這樣的裝備能順利沿Andrews glacier下山嗎,他看了看我的裝備說:可以,但難度高了一點。我只好打退堂鼓,畢竟我沒有雪攀的經驗。
