North of Rainy Pass the trail gets rough and the snow lingers on the north facing slopes into late-August/early-September. There are two rockslides that took place in the summer of 2013 that you’ll have to deal with.

The first is between Glacier Pass and Tatie Peak and the second is between Rock Pass and Woody Pass. You can dismount andwalk through the first rockslides with some caution. The second rockslides are impassible for stock and require a detour. From Holman Pass, head down Trail #427A to Trail #427 to the Pasayten Airport. Take the Boundary Trail #533 west to Castle Pass back to the PCT.
