<< Stargazer Super Direct
Magic in the Air >>
|15m. 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|
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.

"just the usual solos". Fell off trying to downclimb it- serves me right for showing off. Wall to the right is almost a goer- E1 7b was the consensus. Groped the end hold a few times.

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.

Felt like a total path today- must be getting stronger. Shame it rained straight after and ruined the day :(
