Ascent Trip ReportClimbers register just off the road on the trail next to Silver Star Creek. The trail was relatively easy to follow for first two miles, then became rather difficult to track. Periods of unpleasant and steep bushwhacking along the Silver Star Creek and up the basin. Didn't find a great route either up or back through the basin to the upper ridge, but manageable. Snow over the boulder field was unpleasant with multiple deep post-holing. Great camp on a flat under the Larches at 6600 ft. The glacier is in fantastic shape, no crevasses open. Snow in perfect shape. Rock climb up through the hidden gully is snow free, easy to access from the saddle and easy to follow. Strong team made for a great trip
