Nice job

A well-done page, and it brings back memories of my own backpacking trip on this trail back in 2001, though those memories are not all good since I was plagued by bad blisters on both heels from day one.

Out of curiosity, though, I'd like to ask where you found the name Arrow Pass. I've never seen a name for it on topo maps or in area guides, even ones written by locals. I vaguely recall once seeing it labeled as "Burro Flats Pass," but that was years ago. Anyway, if you know the source, I'd love to know it; plus, I could update my recent page for Arrow Mountain, since I just mention the "10,895' pass" in it.

Thanks, and again, nice job on this page.

Re: Nice job

It is definitely called "Arrow Pass". Local climbers call it that. Local outfitters (including famous Clayton Voss/ "Lazy TX Outfitters) call it that. Locals I met in Dubois call it that. Even Charlie & Diane Winger (i.e. authors of various guidebooks for highpoints) refer to it as Arrow Pass. I don't believe it is on any map with a name.

I have never heard of any mention of "Burro Flat Pass".

This is one of the best route pages on SP. That mountain is now on the wish list.
