Correction to Secor

Lion Lake Pass

by John Wakabayashi

In the guide it says "When traversing from Triple Divide Pass to Lion Lake Pass it is necessary to drop below the level of Glacier Lake to avoid a cliff to the east of Lion Lake Pass." While it may appear that way on the topo map, this is not really necessary and causes a lot of unnecessary elevation loss on some rather unpleasant, loose, class 2 talus. From the outlet of Glacier Lake on can actually head southwest across a bench, then descend a class 2 talus slope which places the hiker only 100 feet or so below Lion Lake Pass.
