On March 5th, 2010 my buddy CHAMmccutchen and I made it to the top of Vesper Peak. We took the standard sunrise mine trail and over Headlee Pass. The weather was great and views were amazing. I would like to come back in the summer and experience the clean slabs to the Summit. I can't imagine going up Headlee Pass when its loose rock and talus though. That does not sound like a ton of fun. For us, the conditions were deep snow and some ice in sections. This made for slow traveling on such a steep incline. Headlee Pass should not be attempted without the right winter snow gear. There wasn't a boot path to the summit, however a group had recently climbed to the summit and skied back. We followed the ski and snowboard tracks which stayed somewhat firm when the sun started to warm up.
