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.
