Desperate Den** E6 6c
[Franco onsighting the heinous, desperate moves on Desperate Den - E6 6c, 2 kb]15m.

Rockfax Description
20m. Start at a carved cross and make desperate moves up the wall to reach holds and runners on Stargazer, finish up the wall above passing the right-hand edge of the roof. The start is currently a bit dusty. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
Brilliantly thin moves, via huge reaches to gain Stargazer Direct from the natural Start. There is no gear, but a fall can normally be shrugged off with a little rolling(!) - Franco 'broken bones' Cookson, nov 09. Probably still awaiting a full onsight.

Hidden - Solo - 02/Sep/12

Very close to crimp at full lock off in bridge position. One or two more inches (height or arm span) and it would be cruiseabe. Not to be.
