Oval and Star are the two highest peaks in the beautiful Sawtooth Range east of Lake Chelan; we'll also do Courtney and Buttermilk Ridge. Although the pace will be moderate, there is a lot of ground to cover (more than 25 miles) and elevation to gain (more than 8000 feet). We'll camp both nights at Star Lake.
