What about the Northwest Couloir route?
The 1st photo was taken from Challenger Point
and shows the entire NW Couloir (red - center). The 2nd photo was taken
from the notch between the twin summits on Crestone Peak - looking directly down
the NW Couloir. If you compare these photos to ones taken on the South
Face / Red Gully, it's clear that the NW Couloir route is steeper and
involves more difficult terrain. If you are climbing The Peak, I recommend
the South Face route.
