Correction to Secor

Peak 12851

by Tom Kenney

I looked up Peak 12,851 in Secor's "High Sierra" and was aghast to read that the only reported route on this peak was rated class 1 in difficulty. There are absolutely NO routes up this peak easier than class 3, and the summit block is class 4 at least. This is a very interesting peak, and completing a traverse from east to west (or vice-versa) would be quite a feat, and an exciting climb.
