Description 

Located on the south face of the pillar, start in a small corridor on good holds to the first bolt. Although not technically difficult for the grade, Brewser requires some thinking as the sequence is critical and not obvious. Higher up, the climb is more slab than edges. All in all, a good climb that never eases up too much. Rappel to descend.


Location 

On the south face, around and left from Rise and Devour.


Protection 

4 bolts, chain anchor

IMHO, 5.9 is pushing it, more like 5.7. Put a "+" on it, if it makes you feel better.

I'd say it's at least an .8 but the guide gives it a .9 so there you go.

Delicate high steps on large hollow flakes at the start transition to patina plates and then higher easy slab which steepens to finish with a committing feeling step-up move to the anchors. If you're tall enough you can clip the anchors from a good stance, if not you have to make one more move which feels off-balance.

I agree - the top is a little balancy and tougher than the bottom portion.

Short but sweet. Plenty of good holds, but about the third bolt some larger holds seem to be coming loose.

What Locker said. Easy for the grade, so probably a nice, solid 8. Super fun and a must do.
