Route Climbed: Burgandy Col/Silverstar Glacier Date Climbed: June 1st, 2001  Sucess!

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).

Route Climbed: Burgundy Col, Silverstar Glacier Date Climbed: May 4, 2003  Sucess!

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!

Route Climbed: silver star creek route Date Climbed: August 10/11 2002  Sucess!

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.

Route 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.
