Route Grade Votings

A short but interesting line. Originally climbed without using the arete at 7a+.
very powerfull for the short (7a+) not a very nice finish either.
I'm guessing the left hand arete (for the crux move)is off limits for the grade - or is this allowed? Anyone whose done this route care to comment..
When Mike did it he made a long reach up and left for a poor sidepull. I failed on this move!
7a with the left arete, 7a+ without.
Cheers for the comments guys - will go back and have another play sometime. Only had a quick dabble in the rain so far..
Following the clearing of ivy to the left of the route using the arête seems less off-route than it did before. I now think the route is a pleasant 6c+ with the left arête, and a graunchy 7a+ without!!! Either way the route isn't 7a.
