was suprised to see so many footprints traversing left to avoid the best part of the route on the Dorsal Fin. Great exposure but easy climbing

Soloed up to the arete proper, then climbed a single pitch to the top. got a bit muddled up with 2 axes (maybe 1 would have made things a little less of a faff). Awesome exposed moment when stepping up onto the ridge just before finishing up the easy snow slope.
