Do not ascend the obvious gulley leading directly to Burgundy Col, instead take trail leading up gulley directly above camp to below the cliffs to the left of the col. Almost at the head of this gulley, make an ascending traverse to the right, under the cliffs, over heather covered slabs into the col. Descend 200' steep snow on other side. Make a rising traverse S to subsidiary ridge, then continue rising on Silver Star Glacier to summit col. Careful route finding allows a scramble E to summit, otherwise a short pitch of low class 5 may be encountered. Although this can be done as a long one-day climb, the long drive and beautiful view of the Liberty Bell massif makes a two-day climb more enjoyable. Pickets may be useful to protect steep exposed snow.
