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.

smolders 29 Aug, 2016 AltLd OK, being neither specialists nor masochists, we found the offwidth chimney an unpleasant experience. The rest of the climb was lovely though.

monsteratt 5 May, 2012 AltLd O/S 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.
