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.
