Fran Bagenal starting up Myopia. Pitch 1.  
Thanks Chris Mutzel, you are correct. This IS a photo of Astro Elephant, but it seems we started in the wrong place. The correct start is about 25 feet left of this photo. The photo below show the location of the correct start, and where the climber is in my photo. Sorry for the mix up.

I'm happy to delete this. (It could also be moved to Astro Elephant with caption to say that this photo is ~25 foot right of the regular start.) I can't delete this myself because the site stops photo deletions once there are comments. Admin?

This is not the start of Myopia either!! My evidence is (1) climbed Myopia yesterday and (2) the topo, and (3) the photo under the myopia collection which shows Myopia and the other lines on the South Face. I would suggest just taking this photo down before more people get confused ;).

For those looking for the start of Myopia, look for the two trees on lower south face (accessible before climbing past the chockstone in the gully). The route goes up between those trees, through meandering mid-5th terrain (easier at first), to a few 5.8 crack moves. Up to below the left facing chimney and finger crack on the face. The chimney looks like an overlap from affair, with the finger crack directly left of it. Nov 12, 2016
