Date Climbed: Jun 26, 2016


There was bad weather for weeks in WA so Heather and I drove through OR, CA, NV, UT, and ID. We climbed 37 peaks in 19 days. We parked at the mining buildings and hiked Star during the day and Tobin later during that evening. It was our 7th day and very hot. Star was my 44th world ultra-prominence peak. trip report

fedakEl Dorado Service Road  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 5, 2015


Straightforward trip up the service road. Bit of snow on the flat section of the road and on the summit ridge. Heavy winds above 9k made walking difficult for the last mile.

Pics and commentary are here.

Date Climbed: Jul 3, 2014


Nice hike via the road from El Dorado Canyon. I parked just above a saddle at 7300', which was pretty reasonable in my 4wd full size pickup. The road from there climbed a 40% grade, which is pretty freakin steep for a road, and my legs were burning within a minute. Still a couple snow patches up high.

I think I reached the summit, but in a whiteout with 5" of fresh snow on the ground. It's a nice-looking mountain, from what I saw the day before. Trip report.

calebEOCEl Dorado Canyon  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 24, 2014


I was able to drive to a sharp switchback at 7000 feet where I decided to park as the road was getting pretty steep and a little muddy. From here it was a quick roadhike up to 8700 feet then straight up the ridge to summit. From the valley floor it appeared there might be a lot of snow on the mountain, but once we were up on the mountain it became evident that very little snow remained.

louhibbardLiked the Ridge Travers  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 12, 2013
Thanks to Bob Burd for the Ridge Traverse idea. After summiting Star did Van Zant and Thunder - with Thunder being the most fun with a little third class.

sarahjt1Another Gorgeous Day in Paradise  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 16, 2013


Drove to the old mining site in Eldorado Canyon and parked around 5800ft. Took the road most of the way and left it below the first obvious old tower... Cold and windy with minimal snow made for a quick summit shot with my pups before eating lunch elsewhere.

Date Climbed: Oct 30, 2012


quick trip. drove up to about 7800ft. The road is in great shape but pretty darn steep. Good views and worth a hike if you happen to be driving down I-80 (or are a ultra bagger). Just a little bit of snow.

JonodoRidge Traverse from Sacred Point  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 31, 2009


Hiked from the old Star City site up to Sacred Point to Thunder Mountain, Van Vant Peak then over to Star Peak. I was really impressed by the area. Flowers were blooming and the creeks were flowing. The traverse from Van Zant to Star Peak is very fun. There was one section of an easy class 3 knife edge ridge. Natural arches on the peaks are pretty cool too. I hiked with Greg D on a really long day out of Sacramento.
