[Will Simm leading out over the void on Nimbus, 2 kb]Relatively easy climbing with one hard move but in a great position. The Snake finish gives an even better combination at E2 6a. 1) 4b, 25m. As for One Step... (page 37). 2) 5c, 25m. Move up and right (as Diadic) but continue rightwards on the lip of a roof. Pull up with difficulty, as for Weaver, then break right up a steep groove which leads to the Vector cave stance. 3) 4b, 10m. Continue along the same diagonal line to the sloping ledge stance on Void. Either keep going to a tree in the gully and abseil off, or belay and continue up ... 4) The Snake, E2 6a, 20m. Struggle desperately into the niche and pull out. Swing left across the great headwall in a position of outstanding exposure - it was worth it! © ROCKFAX
