Phil led the first two main pitches, excellent work!! Did in B3s and first pitch with crampons, mistakenly..

More early alpine routes for the others meant we were quite slow, but no problem: it was a nice day. Scree and snow on the walk-in were pretty horrible: IMO better to climb up to the side of the Col Superieur Couloir to get to the breche as we did. First pitch very cold and chossy, second pitch to the summit of the genderme was lovely. Put trainers on at that point to scramble over snow (very wintery on the northern side after the previous day's storms) and ledges to the east summit. Descent via abs down the normal route, and scree running / glissading to the Index station. Walked down to Les Praz.
