Date Climbed: Jun 7, 2007
tought hike up the trail along the creek. very nice once we got up to the col. the weather was perfect at the col but clouds started to come in on the summit as we ascended the glacier, but we got up just in time to take in the view. Great climb.

Excellent climb! Not as much snow as expected from the car, but used crampons and ice axe later. Snow varied from firm to soft depending on sun and who knows. No rope needed. Only two other climbers up there this blue sky day. One day, 11 hours. Will do trip report with pictures later.

Harder than i thought. Semi-steep pack-in then rocks/snow/rocks/snow until we hit the glacier. That was the easy part. Expected 3rd class scramble on the summit block but ended up on some low 5th class stuff. Was i off route? At any rate, you really get the wide-angle view of the north Cascades and that's worth it any day.

A very short approach, but steep. Great larches. Would be beautiful in the fall.

Combined the ascent with Burgundy Spire in a day. An asthetic climb with rewarding views.

Hiked up to the col on a cloudy day with rock gear hoping to climb something if it cleared up. After waiting a bit, Willow and I decided to go towards Silver star around 1:00 pm. Snow conditions were quite good (I managed pretty easily without an ice axe - had poles though). Made it to the summit col when it started snowing on us, and hence decided to pass the summit scramble. Luckily, conditions did not turn worse, and we had a nice walk back on the snow.

I swear I could've reached the east summit that day, but I was just learning the basics through my mountaineering course. We decided to attempt the summit of Silver Star, but visibility was low due to snowing, so we retreated back to the col between the two peaks of Silver Star. It was a great climb on the way up, however, via the Silver Star Creek. I was probably in the best shape since the class had began in late March, and was one of the leaders. Wonderful area, great glacier route. If it hadn't snowed so much on the way up, it would have been a great glissade back down. :) I'll try Silver Star again soon and get to that summit I was only a couple hundred feet away from reaching! :)

This was my first true alpine climb (requiring roped glacier travel and a belay on rock) A beautiful climb with a little of everything. Steep snow, glacier travel, class3-4 rock and a demanding approach.

1st trip hiked in with E Sandbo from Hwy 20 to Burgundy Col and made ascending traverse to the col between E and W Summits. Scrambled up E summit and back down then Class 4 up to W Summit for lunch. Multiple other trips with various partners. Excellent conditioning hike.

leukemicRoute Climbed: Burgundy Col/Silverstar Glacier Date Climbed: May 1, 2004  Sucess!
Approach clear of snow until 6,000 ft, then essentially hardpack snow up to gully below the col. Gully itself is snowfilled with lots of postholing up to col, then fairly consolidated snow on the traverse of the glacier. Thx to the snowboarder who busted a bootpack to the summit- made my trip that much easier and snowshoes unnecesary! The ride down the glacier looked sweet-alas...cash for randonee gear is short.

Great climb on a warm sunny day. The climb up to the col was a bit dicey through a steep gully filled with loose rock, but the rest of the climb was easy. Snow was soft so no crampons or ropes were needed. Spent some time relaxing on the top enjoying the view.

The most spectacular views from the top. Snowcapped mountains as far as the eye can see in all directions. At the time, Baker and Shuksan where getting hammered with weather, so Silverstar was a better option. What a fun little climb (steep approach hike though).

Great climb! Approach was still snowcovered, so snowshoes helped alot. Hard/punchy snow to col, then about a foot of packed fresh snow on north side of mountain. Avalanch danger on steeper sections a little sketchy, but it seemed pretty solid. Fresh snow mixed with rock on summit scramble made things more interesting. Had the mountain to ourselves on a beautiful day!

Ira and ben rushwald, geoff and kate Klise and myself (lee coutermarsh) atacked the silver creek route. I say atacked as it was a typical cascade climb via this route. Good trail to start, then the trail starts getting lost in brush and scree till you have to find your own best line through the silver creek valley. Once above the valley floor excellent climbing in boulder fields,glacier, and a quick class 3 scramble to the summit. The weather was perfect and the mosquitoes were out in force so bring bug juice this time of the year.

The approach via Silver Star Creek was quite easy in early season with snow covering the brush.

BicRungeeRoute Climbed: silver star glacier via burgundy col Date Climbed: August, 2000  Sucess!


Awesome bivy spots at burgundy col. Descended other side of col onto glacier, ascended glacier, then short scramble to top. Glacier easy with only one small crevasse. Crux of route was definitely the hike from highway to the col.
