Correction to Secor, Mount Ansel Adams
by Jim Ramaker
We departed about 4 p.m., circling around the south side of the peak to
circumnavigate it and take the standard route down. It was another good
choice -- we got in some great standing glissades on soft, easy-angled
snowfields. Of the class-3 south face route described in both Roper and
Secor, we saw no sign whatsoever. The entire south face appears to be a
steep, loose, class-5 horror, and the saddle we climbed to appears to
offer the only non-technical way up the peak.
