Description

This is the line that starts about 15-18 ft right of the 5.5 (The 5.5 is called "Better Than Pool & Pie" here in Mountain Project and which is called "Beer & Pretzels" in the 'mini-guide book' by  Mayer & Stisser)

Recommended as a top rope after leading the 5.5.  With the 2 old 1/4-inch bolts now (2019) replaced it's certainly safer to lead than it had been, but my recollection is the bolts are pretty far apart and the first is, like, 25 ft up.

Start on a large flat stone at/near the base of the large crack system and climb up the face.  Crux about 25 ft up; then continue on to the anchors of "Better Than Pool & Pie".

Location

15-18 ft right of the start of the 5.5, but still left of the large crack-chimney.

Protection

Two bolts; All hardware replaced by Black Hills Climbers Coalition, June 2019.   there might be some creative placements for gear.
