Correction to Secor, Red Peak
by Steve Eckert
Climbing Red Peak (11699) from Ottoway, one should NOT go to Red Peak Pass
as Secor suggests. If you do, you will have to drop over 100' as you
traverse around the SW around the gendarmes that appear to be the face of
the peak (they are not). This is a loose traverse. It's better if you leave
the trail just before the first switchback, and go straight up the talus
toward the peak (staying west of the gendarmes).

Safe climbers must be able to understand the terrain
and topography of the area they travel in, and they
must make wise route finding choices based their own
knowledge, experience and observations.
