I'd not rule out the G.G. Vapor Trail - 3600 ci (under 2#). I've done several 125 mi. + backpacks w/it, so it's got plenty of room for extended trips and is, to me at least, very comfortable and it saves a pound over the Nimbus (3800 ci) (but look below re. Latitude Vapor). Also, the Osprey Atmos 50...

See if you can find the book "A Man Who Walked Through Time" by Colin Fletcher. In it, he describes the route HE took.
As well, see Bob Marley's (he lives in Black Canyon City now) trip report

I've been there... hiking north up the 101 trail would likely be the most "express" route (likely 2.5 to 3 hours in the Blue), especially coming from the Az.side. If you were starting in NM & wanted some 4x4 adventure, there are shorter routes. I believe that the canyon you want when leaving the Blu...
