We were up on Torment on Sat. morning around 10:00 am and thought we saw someone soloing two nobs over on the ridge traverse. Good job completing the traverse. We were surprised how precipitous the first section of the ridge traverse is and figured we'd need bivy gear to complete the whole thing. Any more beta? E.g., Did you rap to the northside from the notch below Torment to bypass the gendarmes and regain rock on the next major nob?

Don't answer that. I returned the following weekend (8/12-13)and bypassed the schrund on the north side of the east ridge of Torment, by a single 100' rappel. Don't need screws or a second tool. Avoided any steep snow thereafter by staying on the ridge crest as much as possible.

Amazing exposure!
