Did both ridges as part of a run, lovely stuff, some awesome bits of exposure an nice sections of scrambling. Well worth doing.

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.
