Plenty of mini fins guard the ridge proper which makes this ridge traverse so fun.  This is what I believe Secor's describes as the "Reddish Head wall" on the East face route.  Somewhere on the South Ridge.  Tricky to keep this section 4th class if one sticks to the ridge line proper.  Looking back on the tamer section of the South Ridge
