Climbed Superstar Couloir (steepest line, on the right) on the east face of James Peak. Perfect conditions--topped out around 8:15 and wouldn't have wanted to be any later as it was starting to get soft. We exited unroped on easy rocks to the left of the cornice. The upper snow approaches 60 degrees; I used and reccomend 2 axes, stiff boots, steel crampons. Partner was fine with 1 axe.

The standard route is still fairly snowy but an easy walk.
