Correction to Secor, Center Peak
by Steve Eckert
Only Mark knew in advance
(beta from a friend) that Center Peak has a 4th class summit block!
The SPS list and Secor rate it 2nd class, but if you climb to the
REAL peak, it's an 8 foot boulder which does not work well for
short people. Tall people can grab the edge and finesse it with
friction, short people need a boost or a stack of rocks. I got
up it without a rope, but we belayed everyone else.

Safe climbers must be able to understand the terrain
and topography of the area they travel in, and they
must make wise route finding choices based their own
knowledge, experience and observations.
