Arno's first lead on Peak limestone, with a green start and surprisingly worthwhile crack above

Lead the proper Morning Crack very nice with some lovely moves 3/4 way up. ***** Health Warning - The Picture In RockFax does not show the correct line for this route it actually shows What the Hell *****************

The route is incorrectly marked in Northern Limestone, this is going to be corrected in the next edition. The ivy has been cleared from the crack and the route is clean. Pleasant climb, could do with some more traffic.

wtf. I got pretty lost. With lots of rope drag (my bad I know..) and topped out clinging onto thin roots and loose rock to a poor belay. Should not be included for the sake of including a "severe" in a guide book like Peak District: Climbing. Fail Climb.

Probably VS 4c. For simplicity's sake we walked around to the base of the main crack. Joel got about 10ft up and backed off, then I led clean.

Top roping to remove abandoned gear. Knackering!

Actually did not even start - the route marked on the topo is actually What the Hell, hence everyone thinking this was harder than severe!
