The rising traverse across the imbricated slabs above the huge overhang to reach the ridge proper on the right: verglas and virtually no protection.

"Imbricated" - I learn a new word! It doesn't really convey the sickening feeling that one gets crossing this sort of terrain....
But that's classical training and geologists for you.

I seem to remember it having been much more visibly icy when we were on this some years ago.
