Correction to Secor, Mount Clarence King
by Steve Eckert
We found the right way down from the saddle south of
Clarence King... Secor says to use a ledge in cliffs on the east side
of the saddle or sand and talus to the south. That's right, but hard to
understand because the saddle is on a north/south ridge! The subsidiary
ridge defining the south edge of the bowl east of the saddle is
definitely the easier route - traverse from the saddle out onto the ridge
until you see a prominent 60' tower where you can either descend a scree
chute to the south or continue east on ledges to a small lake.
