Ortenburger/Jackson does not recommend the route for summer rock climbing due to rock fall danger.

As a winter or spring ski descent the line is steep, technical, and very aesthetic. Be prepared for two rappels (we brought a 40m rope and a tag line) in all but very fat mid-winter conditions.  You may find all the anchors you need, but should come prepared with a bit of rock gear and tat.

The line can be accessed directly from Garnet Canyon or from the Southeast Couloir (Sliver)


The climber's left (east) couloir rising from the talus/snow field at the base of Nez Perce's north face.


Gear and natural protection at the top and above the second rappel.
