Latest submitted climbing notes
Dennis Belillo and I climbed the White Princess via it's NW Ridge in August 2017. The death march up the Castner from the highway took and entire ankle busting day to get to where the glacier splits which is where we bivied.
The next day we headed up the M'Ladies Branch for about a couple miles till just before the big waterfall on the left, where we scrambled up dangerously loose scree for about 800m to a patch of tundra at the base of the NW Ridge which afforded us a pleasant 2nd bivi and fresh water. Keep in mind that this is not the route described in the Alaska Climbing Guide; that route is the SW Ridge to the right. The route we climbed is the left and more northern of the two ridges.
The next day we started at 4am and directly up scree and talus and over several gendarmes and false summits. Some exposed and very loose 3-4 class here, where once past we gained the ice. Mostly low angle glacier travel with a short steep section about mid way using front points. After which the main concern was crevasses, and there are some big, troublesome ones. The summit area was unconsolidated snow and the post holing was tiring; a short steeper section just below the summit commanded a belay or two and then we were on top.
The descent was uneventful with the side note that instead of heading back over the gendarmes and false summits, we opted down a loose scree slope all the way to the dying glacier below the West Face and then traversed back to our bivi. We spent another night at 2nd bivi and hiked out to the highway on the 4th day.
This mountain is a real gem for SW WA. The variety of hiking trails available each offer their own unique views and opportunities sure to intrigue hikers of all levels.
In spring, you can enjoy the vast array of wildflowers and butterflies. Once fall begins, the unique alpine species take a turn and create one of the most stunning fall color shows. Come winter, the snow adds a magical feel once again giving the opportunity to capture the familiar views in yet another setting furthermore enhancing the overall beauty of this trail.
Depending on the trail you choose to summit Silver Star, be sure to bring a car that can tolerate the road conditions. This is especially true in fall/winter as potholes can be a real bother. Sturdy hiking boots and trekking poles can be helpful on the loose rocks.
Overall, stay safe and prepare yourself with proper equipment as this is a remote area. Beware of wildlife, Bears have been a common sight for me. They have never bothered me but could present a threat.
Be prepared for some spectacular views of our local Cascade volcanoes and be sure to bring a camera to capture it all!
