Are these fine ridges made of solid or chossy rock?

The rock is solid for the most part and there is a lot of quality scrambling here. The ridge between Blanca & Little Bear is an absolute classic.

Jean and Ken are, but that's one of the most
awesome "knife-edge" ridges I've ever seen!

Thanks! Ken & Jean have a long and interesting climbing history, particularly in Colorado. Among other things, Jean was the 1st woman to climb every peak above 13,000 ft here.
