Fairy Steps** VS 4a
[Mike Stellings on Fairy Steps, Stanage Edge. 1965., 2 kb]16m. An excellent, bold route crossing the wide smooth wall. From a grassy ledge climb the steep slab just left of the corner to the start of a narrow ledge system. A delicate foot-traverse leads out left until better holds can be followed directly to the top. © ROCKFAX

Utterly delightful, though it would be a shame to slip before you step up near the end of the traverse, as you'd swing into the ledge below. I noted at least one party on it yesterday who seemed to think that the route used the big break (higher than the actual route) as a 'hand line' - which it doesn't.

Very easy but lovely moves. Surprisingly good gear (medium and small cams) at the start of the traverse, although you would take a fair old swing if you blew it at the crux.

Exactly what it said on the tin, perfectly easy in terms of moves, but continually stepping away from my last (micro) wire was pretty nerve wracking. Would be one hell of a swing if you bottled it at the wrong moment. Lovely stuff.
