So, I take it this is a leftward traverse and a bit of a downclimb here?

Or he could be downclimbing ... I think the leader took this.

The leader took the photo, and the second is doing a short downclimb. This long "pitch" involved climbing up the left side of a shallow arete for about 200 feet, crossing the arete, downclimbing a bit, and then angling up to the right for several hundred feet. The photo is taken from the base of the "see-through buttress," where the route heads straight up again. Since it was all moderate ground, we simul-climbed (you can see a piece that has fallen out in the snow to the right of the second).
