It was 'blowing a hoolie' down the pass which made things quite spicy on the narrow ridge.

Climbed in the rain with boots, not easy to find gear placements and the rock can be a little loose. Lots of fun in the rain!

Wise to test every thing you grab or step on, as some very large pieces will easily dislodge. Also very hard to find anywhere to place gear, so its virtually soloing! Great climb, though.
