Note: Described in the reverse direction to your journey

Note: This is not the usual way down the bluffs at the head of Kay Creek. You are supposed to go down on the true right of the waterfall at the valley head. I went this way, and found it to be a viable route, as I was initially heading to Sleepy Hollow and had to change plans due to weather. It works though.

From the Scott Creek/Kay Creek Saddle descend down into the basin above the Kay Creek waterfall and then head southeastwards along the valley flank to reach the stream dropping into Kay Creek from the east on the topo map. Steep, bluffy terrain looks initially impossible, but a series of ledges zigzag down through small bluffs down onto steep snow grass and are quite straight forward. From here drop down to Kay Creek. Follow Kay Creek, rock hopping in the stream in its upper reaches, down to flatter terrain. A large flat area at Point 945 is best crossed away from the stream to avoid scrub. When you start to encounter trees, go around the first clump of them ,but look for a large orange triangle on the main treeline, a short distance up from the old Kay Creek Hut. Follow the track to the hut.
