This climb is in 9 logbooks, and on no wishlists.
I would suggest F5+ for all three pitches. Rockfax guide is quite misleading and P1 ends after almost 50m at a hanging belay. That aside, some great climbing throughout.

led p1 clean, 40m 5+. Some loose rock but not so that it detracted from the climbing (if you climb at Porland you won't consider it loose). Absorbing all the way, quite run out in places.
Seconded p2 clean. Really nice start to the pitch on large pockets.
climbed p3 of La Rampe as we had accidentally climbed p3 of La tournyaire when doing La Rampe. Unfortunately went left when I should have gone right and fell a few times before sorting it out.
If all three pitches of La tournyaire are done together then a very good well balanced outing at 5 would be had.
