Access from Reno, NV
US 395 south
Rock Creek Road west to closure
Drive Time: ~3 h

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.
Elevation: ~4000
Distance: ~13.2 miles
Time: ~6 h
