Proton capture populating the (7/2)- second-excited state in Be7, at an excitation energy of 4.57 MeV, is reported for the (p6,) 7Be reaction at a bombarding energy of 44.4 MeV. This state cannot be populated by either a conventional direct or semidirect process. Evidence is presented showing that this state could be populated via a multistep excitation in the entrance channel.
