Mawarime-daira camping -> Mt. Kinpu 金峰山と廻り目平

We arrived Mawarime-Daira camp site around 10:00, which were a bit later than we planned, due to the 3 days weekend. Good parking spots were already taken, but we managed to take a good and shady spot for 2 nights.

 Mawarime-Daira camp site: 2800 yen for 2 of us, with parking for 2 nights. They offer their bath for 400 yen per person. You can buy fire woods for 550 yen, and if you purchase garbage bag from them for 200 yen, they will take care of the garbage, otherwise you should take back all garbage.
They have luxury of water-flowing toilet, and one of them is western style.

Karasawa fall in Kamoshika trail.
This camp site have so many of good rock climbing spots, so we saw on-site rock climbing classes held there.
The dead tree reminds me a project failed when it was planned,
but insisted to survive, ending up with dead...
Also, some facilitators set up gramping of matching party there prepared for the long weekend. We kept hearing fake laughs of these party.
The place have trail walk "Kamoshika (Deer trail)"which have ladders and ropes.
It was not good idea to take dogs. We were glad we put heavy duty harness on her.

In the next day, we started climbing at 5am to the top of Mt. Kinpu. The path was altered due to their construction, but we could reach the top of the mountain around 10 am. The place was crowded by the people who came in from the other path. The mountain have 4 different course than where we came from.

The weather was beautiful. I tried to climb up the famous Gojo Rock, but I could not figure out how to get up there after the middle point. However, a person tried after me figured out and went up the top! I learned from his maneuvering in his climbing, and hoped I could steal the technique in the next time.
Top of the Mt. Kinpo

 There were elder people who were eating in the middle of the rocky path. I learned younger people are more considerate than older people in Japan, particular in terms of behavior in mountains.
Kinpo san Hut had retriever boy who apparently
fell love in my dog, but given cold shoulder.
I could see the Hotaka mountains and Yatsugatake.

Caming back to the Mawarime daira camp site, enjoyed sky with filled with stars and alcohol.
 The bath was lukewarm around the time of 14:00, probably because it was too early for the prime bath time. Oh well...

Foot note of mixed feeling

In fact, we saw none of Japanese field workers, but all southern Asian workers.
We, U.S. family know from the example, if the country take slavery into account, ethics break down, then eventually the culture collapse. (In short, conservatism sucks) 

Foot note of Strong feeling
When we went down the path in the Kinpo mountain, I noticed a dude in his 60s-70s coming up, so I stepped aside to give him the narrow path. He immediately changed his wooden cane to his left hand, which was the side we stepped to.
I sensed his fear. Very likely, it was his fear of dogs.

Not surprisingly, he opened his mouth, said "Do not take dogs to mountain". I talked back, "Why?" he replied, "Because dogs are bad to soil and birds". I asked again calmly, "Are human not bad to soil and birds?" He muttered and kept clime up. My husband were also talked by this dude, but he did not understand what the dude said. He reported the dude smelled like alcohol. 

From my experience of dog ownership, people who bitch about mere existences of something different from them, such as dogs, are the people who FEAR of the them. In the case of canine-phobia, they probably did something nasty to dogs and got backlash in their childhood.
This pattern reminds me white supremacist in U.S. where  people are simply in fear of retribution.
My answer to them is; Find your shrink, prick.

冬はともかく、雪解けしてからも仕事が忙しくて山に行けず、ちょっと土曜日に行った辻山も、雪が未だ深く途中で下山。5月は老母と旦那と犬を連れての奥穂高の温泉に行ったけど、私がツアコン役だったので気が休まらなかった。 6月に笠取山に犬と旦那を連れて行こうとして、新しくキャンプ用のザックまで買ったのに、天候不良になりそうで中止。 私が好きで行く私の為の山登りが、今年全くできていない!!と、正直キレた。 キレた勢いで、甲斐駒を計画してしまいました。前から「刀利天狗」とか「摩利支天」とか、中二病スポットにあこがれていたのです。 なので、上記スポットを通る黒戸尾根コースで計画しました。 正直言って、スキル不足でした、と後から思いました。まあこれは後で。 前日~当日登山口 会社の飲み会でいつもよりも遅くなった上に、旦那もなにやらコミュニティイベントがあったとかで、遅くに帰ってきてから犬の散歩。そのあとでパッキング最終仕上げ。うーん睡眠不足。特急電車で寝れるからいいか。 当日朝は、4時に起きて犬の散歩→早朝電車で新宿へ 小淵沢で下車して、予約していた Mountain Taxi で尾白渓谷駐車場へ 去年の北岳 も、北アの時も、だいたい早朝出発なんだったんだけど、今回は公共交通機関を使ったので、9時出発です。 ここで、YAMAPの甲斐駒地図をダウンロードしていないことが発覚。くっそー。昨日の私を呪う!! ~笹の平分岐 蝉の声がカナカナカナ…と降ってくる中、深い緑の間を一人で登っていきます。今回、のぼりでは全く周りの登山者を見かけませんでした。 蛙さんこんにちわ。 しかしなー。登りがしょっぱなからつらい。結構頻繁に立ち止まってしまう。コロナで2年半ぐらい家から仕事してて通勤がなく、まあ、ほぼ毎日犬と走っているけど、全身運動は特にしていないので、体力が落ちていることをしみじみ感じました。 やっと笹の平分岐!で、前日コンビニで買った、滅多に買わない高カロリーの菓子パンを食べます。写真にとれなかったけど、子サルがいました。  ここで、周りにほんとに登山者がいないので、熊鈴をストックにつけ替え、ウルさめに設定しなおしました。 笹の平分岐の後に粥餅石。 遠くからでも目を引く、倒木の上のキノコ。 こういうのが、森の中の見間違いになるんだろうなあ。 この山は、山岳信仰、特に剣術を学ぶ方々が信仰している


I started to consider climbing up a mountain in south Alps in Japan, right after I climbed Mt. Yari in 2018 . I could not accumplish that in 2019, due to my broken bone in my left arm. In 2020, the whole South Alps was closed due to Covid-19. This was the long-awaited chance to climb up Mt. Kita. 2018年、 北ア槍ヶ岳を登った 後、南アにも行きたくなった。2019年は骨折で断念。2020年はコロナで断念。今年こそは!と南ア北岳にお邪魔しました。 芦安駐車場  (Ashiyasu Parking lot) In the previous day of the climbing day, I drove to parking lot in Ashiyasu . Driving to this parking lot was scary because it is a drive alone in the narrow and dark mountain path. However, in the parking lot, there were many climbers already parking there in 10:30 pm. A morter cyclinst was even sleeping on the ground with sleeping bag. Oh, that looks cold. I wrapped into a blanket, slept while listening a ukrere sound, strum, strum, and strum.  前日10:30pm頃、 芦安駐車場 に着く。芦安に行くまでの道は暗くて狭くてかなり怖い。 しかし芦安第二駐車場に着いたら、多くの車が同じことやっていて安心した

発端状山@沼津 元ラブホに老母と宿泊w

  沼津の内浦湾に続く伊豆長岡三津線にぽつんとある ペットフレンドリーなホテルに年末年始泊まりました。 伊豆富士パノラマパーク でお昼。 老母がいるので、あまり歩き回らず、すぐにチェックインします。 ホテル自体はかび臭いし、ドアの横にはブレーカー機材がいちいちある。 ベッド周りの元ラブホっぽい機材が笑えます。 ホテルの周りには 廃トンネル と、 取り壊し中の廃ラブホ(旧:ホテル三津アイネ)があり、 新年からオカルトになりました。 大晦日はRIZINを見て、朝は初日の出を見ようと、発端状山に少し登りました。 しかし、意外とガッツリ登るコースでした。 全く登山の用意をしていなかったので 途中でひきかえしました。   途中でも、なかなかきれいな早朝の富士山は見れました。 そしてその後ろは、南アかな? 帰り道の、箱根ターンパイクからの富士山。 今年も安全登山でよろしくお願いします。
