DescriptionThis 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.
