Traversing the RidgeCrossing the usual Knife Edge Ridge was fun, a little scrambling in ski boots always adds to the experience.

Entrance to the decentLooking down the entrance, we can see that there is a boot track both up and down, glad to be on skis for this part.

Dan about to ski the lineDan at the entrance, it was a bit winded here, made for a few scary turns above the rocks.
