Nice to finally run into on the trails! It goes in trail runners but I'm not sure you can class it as a scramble. The rock band to ridge proper takes a few committing lay backs down low and some low 5th class face moves as you reach the top. The ridge is no harder than the ridge to the summit although there are two (from memory) low 5th class blocks to climb along the way (could be avoided perhaps but I didn't even try with the storm ringing in my ears).
One of my favourites for sure.
Awesome to meet you too man! Nice work in the trail runners, that's intense. I'll be bringing my stickies next time ha ha. Sweet accomplishment!!! Serious kudos
