Correction to Secor, Mt McAdie
by Steve Eckert
It appears to me that there is a second class chute from Crabtree Pass all
the way to the 2nd class ledges after the notch in Secor's standard 3rd
class route. I looked up the chute from the bottom, and down the chute from
the top, but didn't do it. If it actually connects with no cliffs, McAdie
should be downgraded from 3rd class to 2nd class in the SPS Peaks List. It's
certainly the long way around, but I've never seen mention of a 2nd class
John Bees adds:
Back in 1987 or so I solo climbed the east side route up McAdie and
descended the west side chute down to Crabtree pass. Other than the
interesting route up McAdie's North summit, I don't remember anything
challenging descending that chute to the pass so I would agree that it
should be rated class 2 although it doesn't look that easy.
