Shooting Star is in. Great kickstepping conditions once passed the apron. The traverse over to the apron though had some postholing but was able to push through to where the descent into the basin had more consolidated snow conditions. Recommend two ice tools, for comfort level, angle was probably around 55 to 60 degrees starting from where the Shooting Star branches off. Had to bring snowshoes for the descent, but overall descending the standard route was in good condition for snow travel despite hitting some weather on the way down.
