Ames High** f7A+ / V7
There's been some confusion over the line of this climb. The logical line is to initially follow Ames Low, but make one move higher up Slugtaste before making a big span to an obvious boss at the top of the flake. Just as good as Ames low and deserves more attention.

Repeat. Usual warm up first. Second go today (slipped off early on as warming up)after practising the span once. Get's the heart racing nicely.

Ticked 3rd go tonight felt tired and a little under the weather but this brightened the evening up. Really good problem as good as aims low. Maybe a tad harder but still same grade.

Will go easily next time, skin stopped play again..... took a while to find the crucial hold for the big move. Great problem!

Took a few goes, especially pysching myself up for that long, high span. Harder and possibly better than Ames Low.

I've always been confused about this line. When I put it in the bouldering guide I wasn't really sure. Did it today going along Ames low, up Slugtaste one more move than Ames Low then making a similar but bigger span to a boss at the top of the flakes. Seems like a feasible line at 7a+ and is at least as good as Ames Low. Deserves attention for Sliced Slug devotees!
