AD, not PD. Light rock rack required for the traverse of the ridge.

From the col we soloed the ridge. Quite tricky in places as snow was very hard. Also busy with guides and clients.

The ridge was covered in snow and and all of the rock had a thick coating of verglass making it pretty hairy for a PD!
