Beer for Breakfast is a rare (partial) crack line on the Lower Tier of the South Slabs.

Ascend a right-angling, right-facing dihedral immediately right of Jazzman (a.k.a. Turdland) through steepening terrain to a small roof. Surmount the roof on small holds (crux), and continue up the easier but runout face above, aiming for a seam in a depression above. Climb the seam - very thin, 8+/9 - and push onward up the slab above to belay anchors shared with Jazzman (a.k.a. Turdland).


Behind and to the right of a pine on the right-most side of the Lower Tier of the South Slabs is an alcove featuring a number of cracks. Beer for Breakfast climbs the right-facing dihedral that forms the left border to this alcove.


A light rack will get you up this pitch comfortably - the dihedral takes small nuts on up to a #3 Camalot, and the climbing above is mostly run-out, with potental for micro cams or maybe RPs in the seam.
