Description Suggest change

Hammer Case is a showcase line on a beautiful, secluded little wall and is also a readily doable 5.12- lead for the park if you are feeling fit. Dave Groth turned me onto this line in the mid 90's. I was instantly taken with it and lead it in short order. This line was on his short list of protectable 5.12’s in the park.

Find a nice starting hold, grab it and climb up and left along a sweeping seam/crack. Great moves, just enough gear, and very little traffic.

Major Mass, left of Hammer Crack.

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