Giant Steps S
62m. Takes the eponymous steps out right from 10m up Ash Can Gully (optional first pitch below as per Wolverine Chimney). These lead to a wide offwidth which is only recommended to specialists or masochists. Mortals can bypass this by taking the cracks right of the Wolverine Chimney up and right to a big flake exit (steep, protected S 4a) and easier ground above; giving a pleasant climb for high tide.

P1 only, to escape the incoming tide, didn't know what we were on as it's not in the selective guide

The chimney was horrific, Min fell, so I ended up leading us out up Wolvering Chimney.

We abbed into the wrong place for south face direct so Chris tried to do a line to the left of giant steps up the steep wall. Turned out to be pretty solid so made our way up here instead.

Scrambled up pitch 1, led pitches 2 and 4. John led unpleasant chimney pitch (with difficulty), I followed with even more difficulty (and tight rope). A route I have no wish to repeat!

soloed pitch one, led pitch 3 - the awkward chimney - very strenuous

The first moves up the chimney are strenuous and hard to start. John Bunney left his mark on the route.
