Description

The climber's enemies are fear, apathy, love-handles, soft hands and self-doubt. After a good day of battling these incidious advesaries and beating ones self to a bloody pulp, it is a good idea to end the day with a Peace Pipe...or start with one, depending on the battle you have to fight that day. This route is a long, slightly overhung line with killer moves. It packs a wallop with a battle of the bulge crux and only has one good rest before the final push into enemy territory that leads to the anchors. Do this route! Do it over and over again!

Location

Peace Pipe is located to the left of Bare Fisted Grizzly Killer and Totem Pole. It shares its first few bolts with a 5.10b called ChockStoned. If 5.10c is what you crave, don't traverse left, keep going up and right.

Protection

A dozen draws will be enough to get you to open anchors and a spectacular veiw.
Hello all!
We were just on the Peace Pipe climb on 7/21/14 and the nut on the 4th bolt was loose. We didn't have any tools to tighten it up, and we don't live in the area so our pumped fingers did their best. I told the local climbing shop in Spearfish so hopefully it gets fixed. So if you're on that route, test it out and beware! Jul 23, 2014
