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.

tombeasley 6 May, 2014 Sent x 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.

tombeasley 4 May, 2014 Sent dnf Will go easily next time, skin stopped play again..... took a while to find the crucial hold for the big move. Great problem!

Joyce ?May, 2014 Sent x Took a few goes, especially pysching myself up for that long, high span. Harder and possibly better than Ames Low.

Dan Savory 26 Apr, 2013 - 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!
