Abstract: In our earlier work we exhibited a finitely presented group $ G$ that we claimed enjoyed a geometric property called unbounded dead-end depth. We described a model for understanding the word metric on $ G$, which regrettably was incorrect. Here, we describe the corrected model and the revised proof that $ G$ does indeed have this property.
