Just want to reinforce your comments about much of the route being unbelayable. I've climbed all three of Forbidden's main ridges, plus the NW Face and this route, and this is the one that had me scared. We did it fairly quickly and mostly unroped, but there's damn litle room for error. I'd rather descend the W Ridge than this if I hadn't just come up it.
