Found this pretty tough for the grade. Used gaston above roof with the left and rocked up. Near the top got flaky hold with the right.

Hardest 7a+ I've ever gotten on. Managed to drag my ass to the top after about 20 falls. Hard to read.

Great route, a better, tougher version of Haute Cuisine. 3rd day over 2.5 years, also tried 22/02/09 and 17/07/11.

Fluffed my sequence a couple of times. Really awesome route. Feels nails to start and then easy once you do it.

Hard to grade. Doesn't feel as desperate as Haute Cuisine yet does feel harder, if you get my drift. Missed out on the old 7b tick!
