<< One Step in the Clouds < Diadic | The Weaver > Cream >>
The original route of the buttress which follows a great line. Its best bits now feature in other routes but it is still worthwhile. The Snake finish is even better and still only E2 5c.
1) 4b, 25m. As for One Step... (page 244 ).
2) 5c, 25m. Move up and right (as for Diadic) but continue rightwards on the lip of a roof. A short stiff pull over a roof as for Weaver leads to a small ledge on the lip. Break right up the steep groove of Cream, which leads to the Vector cave stance.
3) 4b, 10m. Continue along the same diagonal line past the spike belay of Cream and continue right to the sloping ledge stance on Void. Either keep going to a tree in the gully and abseil off, or belay and continue up The Snake.
