This route is up valley from Darkness Falls. Col of the Wild was the first ascent of Nantina's North Face. It is also substantially easier.

Look for an obvious right slashing couloir with intermittent short ice and mixed cruxes. There is lots of simulclimbing of steep snow on this route. Toward the top, it may be necessary to tunnel through a large cornice to access the summit.

Slings exist near the top to rappel the route.

Round trip time from camp in the Dishwater Drainage was about 16 hours on the first ascent.


This route is up valley from Darkness Falls on the North Face of Nantina Point.


Standard alpine rack with a selection of small to medium cams, nuts, knifeblades and angles, ice screws, specters and a few pickets.
