Miles Smart leading the crux of the Nipple Pitch on El Capitan's Zodiac route. This section, if climbed hammerless, requires multiple inverted cam hook placements in a row. These placements are terrifying but secure.

I lead the Nipple pitch in 1995 hammer-less. Just used small nuts and cams. It had a few fixed pins in it! no cam hook necessary.
