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).
