Brass Balls, Steel Nuts and Sticky Rubber

Peter Kamitses is on fire! We were back at Moss Cliff in the Adirondacks for Labor Day and Peter did the first free ascent of Brass Balls, Steel Nuts and Sticky Rubber (5.12) which is a RAD traditionally protected pitch immediately left of Mistah Luthah. It involves sustained 5.12 climbing with multiple #3 RP placements among other small and intermittent gear placements. Watching Peter dispatch this rig was one of the sickest things I have ever seen. It's probably one of the coolest traditionally protected pitches of rock in the entire ADK Park. SICK job Peter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
