Correction to Secor, Matterhorn Peak

by Ron Karpel
Secor rates the Matterhorn Pass as class 3. The approach from Spiller Creek according to Secor is from the right (North) following a ledge system. We found an easy class 2 chute on the South side of the pass. To get to the chute from the pass, climb South about 20 ft and traverse to the left. There is a 2 stone cairn marking the traverse. Descend to the chute which leads to the left (North) as it goes down.
