David is right, the traverse is fun too. I can't say that it's more exposed or tricky then the Kain rt or most of the climbing on the NE, but it's very exposed as far as the weather goes. Climbers are at the very top of the spire traversing between two summits for at least an hour without any way of retreating in case of a storm. There might be snow or ice on the rock. Also, traverse requires two or three rapps, which are only 10-15' long, but one would need to stop just in time, or will be forced to climb back up or traverse on much less pleasant grounds.
As far as belaying... I don't think we ever untied from the rope there. Don't think it's a big problem as long as you can still move fast. Â
We don't have a single picture of the climb because most of the day was spent inside a cloud. It felt as if it could start raining any second and I don't think I ever climbed faster in my life. If someone would see us there, they might think we were scared or something...
All this sounds like a horror story, but way too many people survived this climb just fine, including truly yours, so it can't be that bad Â
