Approach


Red Baron Tower is located 1/2 mile up from Peak 13,016. Peak 13,016 is clearly visible from the Stone House and is incorrectly identified in the Moynier guide as Red Baron Tower.

Plan on 3 hours from the Stone House.

Route Description


See the description in Secor.

Essential Gear


Double set of cams, big gear for the dihedral.

Route Comment

The second edition of Secor incorrectly locates Zig Zag Dihedral to the left of Red Baron Tower.





From the base of Red Baron Tower, climb up and right on a huge ramp system to the center of the large, monolithic south face of Peak 3985m aka Peak 12,960+ aka peak 13,016. At the highest point of the ramp, climb up into the large, right-facing Zig Zag Dihedral.
