Thought it was an AD (as listed in Valais Alps East) so took up a rack. Ended up climbing it like a sport route, clipping the stakes as 'bolts'. Very straightforward.

We thought it was an AD ridge route. Disappointed abated quite a lot by the fact that it was still quite fun!

I am sure it was a very nice AD but it is now a nice via ferrata and a quick way to the top if doing the traverse to Egginer.

VF but lots of it hidden under thick snow and some anchors undone, good fun but took away some of the excitement.
