All info is welcome and thanks in advance
It's not that tricky, even for the reach challenged like me. It's more the exposure than the technical aspect. When I was first there over 10 years ago, we had to back up the pitons with our climbing rope. On our subsequent return 7 years ago, the pitons (on the traverse) were equiped with steel wires similar to via ferrata.
it's fairly exposed. Whether you want a harness or not is really down to how comfortable you are with that. We met people at the start who were turning round as they weren't happy to do it without harnesses. We didn't feel they were essential
It's not very long, takes a few minutes. With a full pack on I'd have wanted some sort of backup
No, wouldn't really call it a climb from a technical view. I was with a non-climber and they had no issues with it.
