The North Ridge further left is easy to descend.

That ridge is so avalanche prone that any sensible climber wouldn't even go near it , Even if you do manage to descend the icefall just below the ridge is severely broken up making it almost impossible to negotiate....
There is a reason why Rakaposhi has seen only a handful of attempts , You have to see it upclose to understand......
