Turn left below the rock outcropping and traverse to the rocks and the ridge proper at about 15,700'. You can continue past the outcropping and go up one of the middle gullies but it's steep, hard ice, and painful.
View up the Northeast Fork of the Kahiltna Glacier.  The West Rib is somewhat obscured, but this photo includes a very good view of the top of the route, including The Orient Express.

A team on the fixed ropes in the first rock band's couloir between 16,500 and 17,000 feet.  The line on The Orient Express follows the left-most couloir to the skyline.  The snow blowing off the skyline indicates high winds aloft.
