Motivated by the need of spectroscopic data to better understand the astrophysical rp-process, we developed a new experimental method using the Grand Raiden magnet spectrometer to study proton rich nuclei with α and 3He induced reactions. First results of the 24Mg(4He,6He)22Mg reaction at 206 MeV and O° are presented, showing states relevant for resonant reaction rate calculations of the proton capture 21Na(p,γ)22Mg and the 18Ne(α,p)21 Na reaction which controls the break-out of the hot CNO cycles at X-ray burst conditions.
