60m, 2 pitches. The old aided line of what is now Totally Free. Hanging belay at half height.

From Dave Musgrove:
The Super Directissima was climbed by John Sumner and Glen Kirkham in 1969
and started where Biven's original second pitch [of The Directissima] started (up Free and Even Easier) and continued more directly to a hanging stance between the ledges and finished up what is now the line of Free and Easy and out over the top roof.

John Sumner, Glenn Kirkham

Bringing back aid! Felt dizzy on the full Malham height exposure while dangling on some 40 year old coat hangers. Unsure if it was still there but went to have a look anyway. Current condition C2+: bottom half of first pitch seems to have gone, do few consecutive hooks in original hook/bolt holes on "Something Stupid". Ancient bolts reappear at bulge for 15m until they got dissolved by slime, top "bolt" fell down when I touched it... Pendulum right onto sport belay, then aid adjacent route for 10m before joining the original line above the dissolved bit. Its then straightforward aiding to top roof on bendy plates and a hook or two. In the rain, not many climbers around to cause much controversy, also, no rock was harmed during this ascent :)
