Started in deer park then out to lost lake. Awesome views of the Grenadiers along the way. Continued on to Verde lake and over to the upper Highland Mary lakes. From there headed up to Whitehead PK then to MT Rhoda and descended down the north face of the saddle between Rhoda and Whitehead back into deer park.

Nice hike with Duchess, together with Whitehead, and 2 close by UNs. (4 thirteeners, wanted to continue onto Kendall, but it started hailing on us).

This climb was part of the 2010 Summitpost gathering in the San Juan Mountains. Kessler and I decided to join the activity. The group met at 5:45 AM at Silverton. We carpooled to the trailhead, but there was some confusion as to where the trailhead actually was, so we ended up walking some extra distance.

We followed the trail up to near Highland Mary Lakes to where we left the trail and climbed up Whitehead Peak. After climbing Whitehead Peak, we climbed the ridge south over to Mount Rhoda where we all had a short rest. Most people went around the cliffs back to the ridgeline, but Kessler and I climbed down the cliffs directly, just for fun.

The group then climbed over to Peak 13,434 where we had lunch. It was also decision time. There were some poofy clouds to the east, but the wind was coming from the southwest where it was clear. I thought we’d be OK to go on to the next peak (especially since the rest of the ridge was gentle), but was outvoted.

All three peaks we climbed over had some nice views of the more rugged peaks in the San Juans including the Grenadiers and Needles.

After enjoying the views we all headed back down the mountain through the Spencer Basin. I stopped in the Spencer Basin to talk to Aaron and other members of the group, but I had to almost run down the mountain to catch up with my son Kessler. We had made a deal that the last one of us down the mountain was a princess. I guess I can be called Princess Dad for the next little while.

I climbed with the SP group at the 2010 summer gathering. We hiked from the Cunningham Gulch trailhead past Highland Mary Lakes, and summited Whitehead Peak, Mt. Rhoda and UN 13434. We descended through Spencer Basin to return. This was a wonderful day of wildflowers and perfect weather. Next year's event can't come too soon for me. Special thanks to Aaron Johnson for organizing the gathering and this climb.
