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.
