Correction to Secor. University pass.

by artirm » Mon Dec 05, 2011 7:12 pm

I appears as if Secor mislabeled University pass on one of the pics in his classic encyclopedia. I think that here
http://www.summitpost.org/university-pa ... 5/c-151291
the pass is shown right, after the author was corrected. Secor though confused the shortcut variation for the actual pass, and what he shoes as the variation looks plain scary.

I've come down that variation after summitting University Peak via North Face and what I found scary was the NEVER-F'ING-ENDING morraine! "Scary" as in "will this ever f'ing end?!" Variation is not scary. :/

Did you come down the notch marked as variation on the pic I gave link to?

Yep!
I have a pic looking straight down the chute but I don't know how to post it here.

PS - I just posted the pic on University's page. Enjoy!

Left pic is what I think is right:-)
B/w one is what Secor has. His shortcut looks like a grade 5 climb, not like a long scree.

It's a pretty long standing discrepancy with his notations on the picture in the book, as well as other landmark beta within the book. I came down the chute listed as University Pass in the book, which many of us have known to be incorrect, and know it as the variation. The chute he has pointed out as the variation is probably truly 4th Class.....things always look steeper from far away.
