Great report. Too bad all that smoke marred the views. Kid Lakes look really nice, I will have to go there sometime. I think one could spend 10 days just wandering around from Volcanic Lakes east to Marion Lake. You just have to "pay the price" of a 5000-foot gain to get there. Do you think there is any route that could drop down to Muro Blanco? Muro Blanco is on my late season to-do list and combining it with the crest is an appealing idea.

I have a photo from Arrow Peak looking at the wall from the branches of Kid Creek and it looks like allot of risk. Just so much solid granite. What I can see of the main drainage of Kid Creek dropping down where it is not granite walls it's highly over grown. Probably a bush whack all the way.

I've wanted to climb the unnamed peak on the far west part of Arrow Ridge. I'd get a direct shot from there to study before I'd attempt it.

Alpinemike - thanks for this wonderful trip report and great photos! I'm too old for that kind of rugged climbing, so it's fun to read your adventures.

Glad everyone enjoyed the report. It's my pleasure to share my experiences out there with those that can't get out for that long. I am hoping to keep doing this as long as my body allows it. Hopefully I'll write a book someday about a compilation of my travels.
Never put off a backpacking trip for tomorrow, if you can do it today...
