Leah's recent form has seen her climb Ben's Roof at Raven Tor (Font 7c+), quickly followed by the appealingly named Problem 2, also at Raven Tor (Font 7c), and then come 25th in the European Bouldering Championship in Paris.
During a month long trip to the forest of Fontainebleau with fellow British team climber MinaLeslie-Wujastyk, Leah accrued an impressive list of climbs, including numerous 7a's and b's, but her highlight near the end of the trip was climbing the sit start to the classic 7b+ problem Carnage; Carnage Assis, Font 7c.
