      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Does anyone have any info on SilverStar? Is there snow between HWY 20 and the Burgundy Col? How many people can bivy at the col?Will a rope be needed to climb this peak? Per Jim and Becky...its not required, but some recent route info would be helpful!!!! How is the glacier?

I just saw it from hw 20 last weekend. Spotty snow but there is some. Boots gaitors good idea. But definitly looked accesible.

We did it on Saturday of Memorial day weekend. The climbers trail was snow free up to the bench area just below burgundy col. From the bench up to burgundy col there was a mix of snow and scree. We didn't rope up for the glacier, it appeared in good shape, and we couldn't see any holes. The 3rd class scramble to the summit block is hard to find, but any alternative harder scrambling section is short and I would doubt you'd need a rope for that either, depending on your comfort level. Awesome north cascade views, enjoy yourself.

Hope this helps
