Desperate Den (E6 6c) Onsight Attempt

The epic direct start to Stargazer (E4 6a) is the one of the most impressive and obvious lines at Highcliffe, ascending the blank wall via a couple of imperfections.
I've wanted to get on it for a while and managed to flash the moves to the line of crimps (the crux) then retreated back to the ground. It felt pretty cool figuring a 6c move out ground-up, especially this one; which requires a fair bit of contortion and a massive reach.

Tendons hurt. I will be back with a rope to finish the top moves.
