Early morning on South Ridge of Dent Blanche

Very educational shot of the whole route. Looks to me that you could avoid the gendarme by getting onto the West face and following snow runnels to re-join the crest higher up. Any thoughts yourself? I'd consider soloing the South ridge if this bypass is straightforward. Jamie

Yes, you are correct - most people bypass the gendarme on the left(west) - no major difficulties but care required if icy. Metal stakesevery 15m
