Correction to Secor

Red Peak

by Steve Eckert

Page 388 says Red Peak is class 2 via the northwest slope from Red Peak Fork ... but that drainage drops to the northEAST from the peak. Do you mean the NW ridge versus the NW slope?

I've traversed from Red to Gray on the west side of the ridge, but that's the Red Creek, not Red Peak Fork, drainage. Could that also be a typo in the drainage name?
