Route: From Deer Park

Info: Did the Pt. 13,109 > Whitehead > Rhoda loop. Very nice hike with solid trails for such obscure peaks. Parked at the end of 33A in Deer Park, went towards Pt. 13,109 first, then worked my way to Rhoda. Exited the ridge by heading down the slope back towards Deer Park. There is a mix of hiking and game trails here. Come for the solitude, stay for the amazing views.

Info: Did a loop from Kendall peak to 13,109 staying mostly ridge proper. Kendall pk had a register, but other peaks didn't. We took the direct line up point 13,409 en route to Mountaineer pk (which looked somewhat questionable from the saddle), but it went at Class 4 without too much trouble, a bit loose. We took a fun scrambly variation up the summit block of Mt Rhoda. The rest of the loop was grass. We exited via well maintained Whitehead trail back to the truck parked at ~11,600 ft. Very smoky in the morning, but conditions (and views) improved in the afternoon. Also, there was a sheep herd down in the basin, but they had previously made up (with the poop) halfway up Mt Rhoda and all the way up to Whitehead summit. So domestic sheep climb 13ers too.

Info: No snow to deal with on this one. We approached from Highland Mary Lakes Trail and cut off towards Whitehead-Rhoda saddle just before reaching the first lake. We descended into Spencer Basin from Mountaineer to complete the loop. Awesome views of the Grenadiers.

Route: From \"Mountaineer Peak\"

Info: There's a drop of several hundred feet from "Mountaineer Peak" to Rhoda. Rhoda's summit looks like all cliffs but go around the backside and there's a grass ramp to the top.
