I don’t have any Heppy guides any more but this route has come up in some research work I’m doing,

Does anyone who did the first aided ascent of it (or crossing of it - it’s a traverse) and what date, roughly?

Cheers!

Looking in my copy of Yorkshire Gritstone it lists the first ascent as;

1962   M Day  John Oddie

There is also a note stating

Another obscene aid extravaganza. It traversed left from the rabbit ledge to Fairy Steps at a high level. 

Hope that helps

Thanks for that. 

Those names and dates aren't what I was expecting/hoping to see. I wonder whether 'M. Day' or Oddie are known for anything else...?

The same pairing is also credited with Trepidation but nothing else at Heptonstall.
