Beer Drinkers... starts on the slab to the left of the obvious crack of Arching Way
. I gave this an "s" because the first bolt -- an old bolt -- is about 25 feet up, and if you fall you are bound to break something.
This is delicate South Platte slab: balancy, interesting, small. It felt very sustained up to the 3rd bolt, then eases as you head around the corner to the right.
5 or so old bolts. At the last bolt you can run it out to the top or head hard R into the crack of Arching Way and belay at the tree. A #0.75 Camalot will protect this traverse. Walk off left for the first option; 2 rope rap off the tree (slings/rap rings) for the second option - 130 feet.
