This is a long, deep couloir that runs up the West Face of Silver Star. The first crux is a chockstone that goes at M2-3 according to Colin Haley. More simulclimbing brings you to a fork in the couloir - bear right here. The crux of the route is another chockstone that requires M4 climbing with minimal protection, if any.

Descent is via the Silver Star Glacier route.


The Western (highway-facing) aspect of Silver Star Mountain. The route starts up the descent gully for Gato Negro on Whine Spire. The approach requires 2-3 hours, snowshoes recommended.


Short rope, light alpine rack. Stubby screws useful.
