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.

An Cap intervals at end of a session. Tired, didn't go well.
Joyce - Sent dnf - 26/Mar/15

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.

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......

The holds are all pretty good providing you figure out a flowing sequence, which is the tricky part. Into Golden Bicep next
