For those "confused" out there. Mount Sopris has two peaks of approximately equal height. There is no "secondary peak". Refer to this topo.
The East Peak (where the red line stops) is the peak she wants us to call John Denver. The red line is the standard route up the mountain. Most people do not make the other peak (which on topo maps is where the Sopris name is usually pinned).
So most people reach the East Peak and and say they have sumitted Sopris. Which is true because each peak is approx. equal height.
The East Peak is no secondary peak and is not a false summit. Regardless pop stars should not have their names pinned on mountains.
