Broken Sam

Went down LPT today with Malc. Yesterday it was 22 degrees at 7 o clock so i was hoping for some cooler conditions today. It turned out to be 10 degrees cooler and was absolutely mint. I was keen for a brilliant 8a called Battle of the Little Big Orme and Malc was keen for another go on Liquid. I had 3 redpoints on Battle with the 2nd being the best, almost did it. This route has quite a tenuous crux sequence with two annoyingly blind footholds. Gonna have another do tomorrow. Malc made progress on LA doing it in two. Then we headed to the Cave, i wasn't expecting much after 3 good goes on Battle. Managed to squeeze out a link that i've been trying sporadically for over a year, Broken Heart into the righthand finish of Clever Beaver (Sams Finish). The grade is 8a but i think its the hardest one i've done. Super good power endurance training with a very drop-able last move.
