Rockfax Description
A stunning way across the Vector headwall and also the easiest. A cracking outing if combined with Nimbus. Care is needed with rope drag. Start from a belay below the pod of Void - the easiest way to get there is by traversing left from the tree belay on Grim Wall. Move up and right across a slab to the base of a steep groove on the right edge of the buttress with a tongue of rock sticking out. Gain the ledge then swing down and left onto the tongue of rock. Now make a tricky pull into the hanging groove. Climb this and swing left onto the very exposed arete and follow a line of weakness across the wall to Void. Keep going on a similar line to finish by Cream. © Rockfax

Nimbus into Snake

Lead this pitch as part of the Nimbus-Snake connection. Tricky and committing move getting into the pod, but not that bad once you do it. Cool traverse after the pod, but had horrendous rope drag!

Led this after Nimbus - logical finish. Spent ages working out the move, wasn't too bad once I committed to it but reckon it's worth 6a and the whole pitch is fairly hard for the grade. Very good though. Sam did the crux a different way, without using the one finger hold - may be I was just making it hard...
