βeta: Great little route for lovers of short routes and perfectly bolted. But, someone has to say it: there is no way on earth this is french 7a+ or even close. The hardest move is 6a tops and that comes after a rest. Routes this short in France are typically extremely fierce for their grade to compensate for the lack of length. But one doesn't need to go to France for comparison. There are 6c+'s just across the river that are harder than this. I think it's 6c+ or E3 6a.
