Nice hike! However, the USGS map - and this one! - does not show the correct route from Deer Lakes to Duck Pass. The actual route, which can be seen on Google Earth, goes up a hikers' trail through the talus above Upper Deer Lake, and onto a sandy flat area at 11,150'. The trail up the talus starts at about the 10,920' contour. Then you continue E on faint trails until you reach Duck Pass.
