Equal quality variation to the left branch, separates at the end of the common first pitch - usually quiter than the left branch

We ended up at the fork point to Left branch (branche de gauche) during our descent from Sombre Hero (apparently we went off-route in the descent), so decided to climb this. Therefore the first one-thirds of this route was not climbed on this day (but was on the previous day). Graeme lead the first 2 pitches (from the fork) and I lead the last pitch. Although the given grade of this route is the same as the Left-branch (3+ in Alpine Club guidebook), we found this route is significantly harder.

joined from the fork after walking off sombre heros. alt lead on this. harder than the left hand branch but good value (and a lot quieter then the left)
