From Gens d’armes to the summit of Okuhotaka-dake
I returned to Okuhotaka-dake1 via the terrible trail after taking a rest a bit at Gens d’arme2.
I think that the most dangerous point is Umanose3, but you can see holds and route very well in ascent so it must be easier than its descent.
- 奥穂高岳（おくほたかだけ）. “奥” is the meaning of the inner part or the depth. One of the mountain which consists of Hotaka-dake（穂高岳）. It is the highest peak in Hotaka-dake and what’s more, it is the highest mountain in Northern Japanese Alps, and the forth highest mountain in Japan. ↩
- ジャンダルム（じゃんだるむ）. Gens d'armes comes from french. It means a military policeman. This peak is in the way to Okuhotaka-dake and it is hard to pass once upon a time, so it became to be called Gens d'armes. Now it’s not hard just pass Gens d’arme. ↩
- 馬の背（うまのせ）. It means a horse back. ↩
