Correction to Secor, Mt Eisen

by Bob Wyka & Allan Conrad
We followed R. J.'s guide for Eisen which went well until the leader didn't heed to Al's concern about climbing the wrong headwall and we found ourselves too far south on the south ridge. We lost at least an hour recovering by running the ridge (some easy 4th class in spots) to where the "diagonal, right ascending traverse to the south ridge" intersects. To avoid confusion the words "located above the small upper tarn" should be added to the following route description: "Go up and left of a water- stained headwall, located above the small upper tarn, and make a diagonal, right-ascending traverse to the south ridge of the peak."
