Clearly the N summit is simpler , but requires crossing a difficult crevasse, while the S summit requires one dig in steep (50°) ice. Nirekha peak has two routes to climb together from Kanchung base camp and another from Lake base camp. The ascent from the Kanchung side is to be preferred on this itinerary since it's easier and shorter. The glacier to the Cho La Col on the Kanchung side is straightforward with only a couple of mostly harmless crevasses.
