A real hidden gem! Amazing to see Leo putting big links together only after 10mins of trying.

Got all the moves with lots of beta from Joyce. Nothing too desperate but too tired to put it all together. Sport 7b+?
4 reps for An Cap training - didn't get more than 12 moves in.
Second go today (slipped out of slightly damp key pocket on first go) and then then buttered off return from The Flakes at the span. Fell off twice (once at the span, once at the pockets) during an-cap reps too.
Optimistic attempt as last An Cap rep - got to the span and...melted off!
Tried in the dark as last two An Cap reps. Got about halfway.
warm up :-0
An Cap intervals at end of a session. Tired, didn't go well.
Climbed to the jug at the top of The Flakes, then down climbed and set off back along Ames Low but pumped out before the span. Climbed as the first rep of some an-cap training. Got steadily worse, even just climbing and down climbing The Flakes as the session continued.
Done in two big links. Need to work out a good way to span to the flake, maybe a heel hook? A good contender for my first f7a+, hard though!

Warming up/enjoying the fab conditions and all the holds being dry. Felt weak today.
Tried to reverse training for the loop, didn't go well
Doh! Had one go at the end of the session. Had forgotten the beta and couldn't see the footholds for brambles - excuses, excuses!
Five times for training, fun and because everything else was wet......
Four times, trying left hook this time.
Repeat for fun
x6 on redpoints of Low Blow
The holds are all pretty good providing you figure out a flowing sequence, which is the tricky part. Into Golden Bicep next
x5 on redpoints of Low Blow
x3 on redpoints of Low Blow.
Bit of a siege! Cool problem - onwards and leftwards next...

First go today after being spanked on this 2 years ago.
Font 7a+, close to finishing but no cigar. Next time!
1st time actualy done this link, always done others off of the traverse
First proper go after working the moves out! so many holds so many ways to do it! can this be changed to Font7a+.

Wicked pocketed wall! Took a little play to work out the sequence for myself and then went well on the link, absolute gem! font 7a+ish

trying from crimp rail below shelf, to finish of slugtaste. did in two sections link next time due to battered finger tips!!! very sustained, get rid of 'E' grade give it a sustained font 7a+ with a highball finish

first go second session after spraining ankle on it, nice climbing but should this really have an e-grade? more like font 7a+...
Done finally, first proper session back on it in a year and done 3rd time, very happy! I wonder how many ascents it has had?
Did the whole thing then fell of the flakes at the end. Cant believe it!!!! i will have you soon
