|Peak:||North Star Mountain (13er)|
|Date of Information:||03/09/2012|
Hard-packed or windblown to the first false. Minimal snow from there to summit. The "exposed" section has some cornicing, but nothing dire. Snowshoes unnecessary. Spikes/traction as to preference, but can be done without. When you first leave the trees, there is no reason to head straight up the hill unless you want to (i.e., going left on the road instead of right/straight up will not pose problems). The jeep road is fine. No avy concern through the first false‘s slopes if you‘re on route.
