is it possible to traverse it without special equipment?

You would want at least a harness and a few slings and biners. There is a substantial gap in the ridge at one point. I would also bring a jumar for the ascent. When we where there, there were fixed ropes the whole ways up where it was difficult. A figure 8 or something might be a good idea too, although we mostly just descended looping the rope around our bodies. We used rock shoes but you could get by with boots.
