Sorry I don't have any pics - no camera

I did North Star from the Montgomery reservoir trailhead by walking up the road toward Wheeler Lake and climbing the south face directly near its western end. Made a big mistake - snowshoes are definitely necessary. I'm guessing 3-4 feet off the side of the road. Looking over at Lincoln and Democrat the ridges were nearly completely windswept so there would be no problem there. Wheeler, Traver, and Clinton were covered from this side. Silverheels was completely clear above treeline and Quandry was almost the same. So if you're heading up there I'd definitely recommend snowshoes but once you're up on something windblown you're good.

I was on the ridge saturday and have pics and here's a video. I was having a wardrobe malfunction and turned around.


Thanks for putting a pic on this...
