Link 'Ames Low' into 'The Golden Bicep'. Once at the obvious middle flake after the span on ames low climb down and across the low flake line, spanning left into the good low left hand of Golden Bicep before finishing up this. French 7c/7c+

My nemesis. Fell off Aims Low moves a few times which is my complete and utter nemesis. No knees or toes or whatever!

without any rules about knees and toes (but no knee rubber)- 7A+ for me.

Second session this year. Fell off the move going to the jug on golden bicep twice. Adjusted my sequence going to the jug, used a toe hook instead. Managed to send it just as skin was fading. Really good route with some excellent moves - best problem at Huntsham.

Should have reminded myself of the final sequence before trying, felt strong but mucked it up :-)

The culmination of so many sessions pottering up into the woods to crab sideways along the Sliced Slug. Hardest fight yet? Awesome link of two ace problems with sweet flowing moves. I dont understand how to apply font grades to 30 move linkups but in French grades I think it's 7c+.

Nice! Long power endurance problem, I've fallen off the crux on Golden Bicep a few times, today fell off there again, then had a good word with myself and really engrained the beta in my head before the dispatch! Similar difficulty to Left Wall High in Parisellas - probably worth font 7c and french 7c+.

1st go today, 3rd go / try having done Ames low previously, no rest (knee bar) or heel. (French - Font Traverse 7c for me) 3* problem one of the best at Huntsham for sure.

Slipped out of jug on Golden Bicep, will get it next time. Didn't use rest or heal - font traverse grade probably describes it best.

At last! 6 months of work went into this, including 16 or 17 proper attempts including slipping out of the Bicep sidepull finger jug on six occasions. This has stepped my clambering up a notch. Fantastic!!!

Easy 7b+, especially with the sneaky knee bar semi rest on the low flake. Thanks Ross! He also showed me a version where you heel hook the flake and go to the finishing finger jug of Golden Bicep static. A good variation but 7b this way.

At last. 2nd go 2day. As much as a 7c looks good in the log book, don't think its 7c, font 7b+

peaches69 08/Jan/12 Sent dnf

Came off golden bicep crux twice after a couple goes on some moves. Long an sustained route, think probably worthy of font 7c

peaches69 03/Jul/11 Sent dnf

done aims low and linked into slugtaste before, 2Nd go goto the big move on golden bicep, conditions were less than perfect with humidity but i reakon will go next visit

After many sessions on ames low and a further 3 to make the link. Pretty sure its a first ascent but please let me know if it has been done and named before and I will change details. Is a standout problem of the crag with great climbing linking two of the best problems here. 30 moves long so may warrant a french grade rather than a font grade. Look forward to repeats for confirmation of grade.
