Arrow Peak (13,810 ft.) was the major climb of the season. Carleton Long, leading, and John Nelson performed it in twelve hours from Ten-mile Creek. This is one of the finest expeditions in the San Juans, and was the first of the Grenadier Range’s principal peaks to be climbed. Messrs. Long and Nelson are to be congratulated for accomplishing its ascent. The rock of the Grenadiers is a firm quartzite, and is very pleasing to work on. (Trail and Timberline, Nov., 1932, p. 155.)
