Correction to Secor, Mount Tom

by David Harris
Secor says to follow the southwest ridge from where the road crosses it up to the summit. I'd suggest staying on the road another half mile rather than talus hopping the lower flat part of the ridge. There are doubtlessly class 1 routes up scree and loose talus, but climbing was easier staying near the class 2 crest of the ridge to the summit.
