UKC

20m.

Rockfax Description
The left-hand crack gives a good sustained pitch with a mixture of loose and polished holds. Finish either rightwards, leftwards or direct over the bulge. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start up the short wall below the central crack then move left to the left-hand crack. Finish either rightwards, leftwards or direct over the bulge.
Note, the Rockfax topo is wrong - route 22 is actually What the Hell, route 20 is How the Hell, and route 19 is the left hand finish to How the Hell. Morning Crack is not marked on the topo.

FA. Joe Brown 1950.

βeta: Two large cams make the pro a tad easier - 3 or even 4 would make it 'bliss'. I rifled thro' lots of birds nest twigs & muck to find 2 excellent large hex placements as well in the wide section. The polish is not really a problem as on much of the other easier Stoney stuff.

βeta: A good route, but go right at the top, NOT over the bulge or leftwards where it's horribly chossy and vegetated. Having looked at the bulge option, I decided to go leftwards: a big mistake as the top out is horrendous. I came peeling off backwards, along with various bits of vegetation and several loose blocks. Luckily neither I, my belayer, nor any passers by were hurt.
