"Really!?" - Sonny's suprised response to the GR that Dave gave him off his GPS.  "Maybe we're not even a third the way along yet!"
That sums up my sentiment of the length of Nihahi Ridge.  After the first couple minor high points, the monotony of the terrain wore really thin on me.  So long as you can hack a little difficult scrambling, do yourself a favour and complete the traverse along Compression Ridge.  Without it, there's little reward in traipsing the length of Nihahi Ridge.
Despite the length and tedium of some sections of the Nihahi/Compression traverse, I ended up having a really good time scrambling with Sonny, Dave, Andrew and Pete, of course.
