Dmitriy looks for a foothold

Description 

Left of Hammer Crack. Find a nice starting hold, grab it, and climb up and left along a Seam/crack. Nice moves, very little traffic. A gritty lead...


Location 

Major Mass, left of Hammer Crack.


Protection 

I remember a couple of nuts somewhere in the middle. Particulary a #6 that was a weird placement.

This thing is thin! Good moves though. Horrible rope stretch and penduluming made this impossible to work though without starting over from the very beginning every time, so no send for now.

This route was surprisingly fun. Hard start, but once you establish in the upper crack it's over.

Big holds with tricky powerful moves. After the crux move right to finish on Meat Hammer for more length, 5.10 for that section.

I tamed this down to PG-13 by placing a #3 Master Cam left of the start and a #3 offset in the crux. Biffing the crux would put you on the ground but not too hard.
