Three Lakes Ridge (Rainy Traverse)

There really isn't any "interesting facts" about this ridge other than it has a good view over the three Middlepass ("Burl") Lakes below. Creative naming at its best I suppose...

After approaching the Middlepass Lakes and scrambling up Rainy Ridge it was time to traverse towards the creatively named, "Three Lakes Ridge" - the professional cartographers must have been on holidays when these peaks were monikered. devil Nugara mentions the traverse between Rainy and Three Lakes Ridge as doable but not highly recommended, especially in the direction we were going to be doing it. How difficult could it be right?

Difficulty Notes: 

The traverse from Rainy Ridge to Three Lakes Ridge is certainly more difficult than the ascent of Rainy Ridge although we didn't feel it was more than "moderate" via our route.
