Chelsea Morgan and I skinned up the remainder of Rock Creek Road, then up towards the east gully of Mount Starr. We climbed the gully to the north ridge. I followed the dry ridge to the summit. We skied the gully finding variable snow; powder to a variety of crusts. The crux of the descent in the gully had a slope angle of 48 degrees.
