2012/9/29 – Silver Star Mountain / 銀星山

Photos from this trip can be found here.

Climber’s trail starts just off of Highway 20. Good route finding skills required to get through the initial elevation drop and onto the ridge. Once cross Burgundy Creek, stay on the south of the creek and make your way up the west ridge off the mountain’s southeast buttress. The goal is to make it to the col at 8,000’ (col marker present) before descending to the east of the col. Once reaching the gullies south of the summit, the leftmost gully is the one that will get you up to the col between the two summit peaks at the head of the Silver Star Glacier. Scramble up the east peak to attain the summit.
