100m, 4 pitches. The Snake is an old girdle of this section of crag, listed in Steve Bancroft's 'Recent developments on Gritstone' but strangely omitted from recent guides. Follow Svelt to grass ledges below the top. Traverse right on the upper break above Great Slab, across the Eros wall just under the overlaps, continuing at the same height past Erb and the small cave on Twikker to finish up Diamond Groove.
