<< Striptease < Hail Bebe | Diadic > Nimbus >>
A superb route with exposed climbing at a reasonable grade. Very popular and often busy. Start at the base of Vector Buttress (probably next to a pile of rucksacks).

1) 4b, 25m. Climb blocks to a large tree (as for Hail Bebe). Move up and left to a short groove and climb this to a stance above.
2) 4c, 30m. Step left around the corner (possible belay here if crowded). Move right above the roof and then climb up the slab to a crack which leads to another stance.
3) 15m. Move right, then climb up to the flake. Either hand-traverse this to a final step to a ledge at the top, or do the easier Hail Bebe foot-traverse method to the same point.

Not much to the route really, a scrappy first pitch, a good bit then the top. 1 star.
