βeta: managed to onsite this but fell off Haute Cuisine so would be tempted to agree with some of the comments here! However its more my style and id say 7a/ 7a+ would both be ok grades for this route. As one of the above posts said there are afew rest points of sorts!

βeta: Okay, four years on from my first comment, I believe this route is steady 7a, if 7a+. Still classy crimping. Haute Cuisine is harder in my opinion.
