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.
