Lovely day, great photos and good to see this again :D

I remember my first time doing this, as a 14 year old with my dad. He didn't really know where he was going and we ended up backtracking from some of those nasty bypasses :roll: . Adding on the Pap is definitely a good move - much better than the usual descent routes :)

Good stuff guys and some cracking photos, a perfect day for doing the ridge. I'd considered carrying onto the Pap when i did the ridge but as it was a last minute decision and we only had one car, didn't want to chance not getting a hitch back. :D
