The routes on the Because it's there wall
From the pass it is right behind the Nunatak. There is information about the routes in the Snowbird hut.
Heading up the glacier from the hut, this wall is on the right, the nunatak is on the left. Approach requires climbing 50 to 150 feet of loose rock depending on snow levels. Rockfall is common. Getting to the base of the routes can be dangerous, it's a bit more that walking up snowfields.

BIT wall faces east and get sun until early afternoon. The approach and descent can be very dangerous depending on the snow cover. At least 50, and sometimes as much as 150 feet of freshly exposed, loose choss must be climbed to get to the start of the established routes. This also must be descended, sometimes by abseiling off of a slung boulder. Rockfall is common from the lower exposed choss. Overall rock quality is great, with the exception of the 100 or so feet before the ridge line, as is common in the area. The best walk off the top is to climbers right.
