calipidderFrom Mono Pass, Descent East Face  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 25, 2014

calipidder

Followed use trail from Mono Pass & scrambled through the rocks to the ridge. I think I tagged each high point, thinking it was the summit. Didn't find a register on any of them, but I was in a bit of a hurry and didn't look for long. Followed fun sandy chute down the east face for about 1/2 the elevation, then picked my way through the band of rocky cliffs using short chimneys and chutes. Fun day.

Ascended via Mono Pass and descended via the East Face. South summit has better views, a more interesting summit block and feels higher than the northern summit. The traverse between the two is class 2/3 and worth doing. Fun outing.

Underrated summit in the shadow of giants like Morgan, Abbot, Mills etc. Easy trail to Mono Pass, not so easy slog up the increasingly steep and loose west face. Summit ridge is class 3. Maps and GPS all showing highpoint on north summit, but it's actually on south pinnacle (higher by about 5ft - recorded by GPS in stable weather). Superb views of LLV, Pioneer Basin and all the way to Ritter & Banner. Could even see Lyell peeking between them. Outran a mule train and smoke from the Aspen Fire on the way back.

Having never been to Mono Pass or on Starr, why not take a quick trip and check out snow conditions. Yes, lots of fresh snow up there! Made south summit just as winds picked up and it began to snow. Class 3 boulders covered in a few inches of snow was just not COOL man!

RuvichaMono Pass a special sight

Ambret went 40' higher and claimed success, so I guess I can't, but it sure felt like I was at the top of the mountain. Starr's a nice climb but what made this day special was the sight of pack trains wending their way through the snow, the windswept barren terrain and deep blue lake at Mono Pass, which gave the scene the feel of the Old West.

Summited Starr with friends Brian and Bruce. Beautiful walk up the Little Lakes Valley and past Ruby Lake. Mono Pass still had snow, but it was possible to stay on sand and rock most of the way up. Some fun rock scrambling toward the top of the mountain. Fantastic views from the summit. A very enjoyable hike.

did not realize the mono pass route so did my own version. just go directly to the east face on snow. ice axe and crampons were used. i believe it was a class 3.

From the pack station toured out the road until below the second gully from the north. High winds and icy conditions made a trip to the summit and a ski descent of the gullies unappealing. The north face had picked up all the windblown powder however, making for a superb descent directly back to the car.

LangenbacherSummit Confusion  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 4, 2010

Nice warmup hike before doing Morgan. Spent too much time going back and forth between the E/W summits twice trying to decide which one was higher and searching in vain for a register.

Ascended south summit from Mono pass first - would have been much easier to go halfway down to Summit lake and up the chute next to the North (true) summit.

Great views of Morgan, BCS, Abbot, Red&White, Red Slate, Pioneer Basin, and Little Lakes Valley.

This was fun one with good views. I just remember getting to the summit alone, but then coming down Mono Pass it was a lot more of a traffic jam then I expected. I was waiting for the "passing lanes" when I found myself behind a single line of 15 people. ;)

Another bonus for day 7. Up from mono pass, along the ridge to the N and down a colossal sand slope to Mosquito Flat.

As others have said, the true summit is definitely hard to distinguish. When I was on the South summit I thought the North summit looked a bit higher, but when I got to the North summit the South summit looked higher! Either way, the views are pretty good for less than half a days effort.
