Shooting Star Couloir has a large cornice covering the climber's right-hand exit, but an easy snow exit to the left-hand side is available. Snow was soft at 7am, but supported us up the couloir and we didn't have significant rockfall - saw one at the Y of Superstar and Shooting Star but otherwise none in the couloir itself. We heard some in the area. Summited at 9:30. Superstar's cornice was even larger, but a snow slope to the right of the area typically holding snow seemed to provide a viable exit. May need rock protection if you go that route.
