HistoryWhen first climbed in 1984 this was a single-pitch face route. George’s friend, Mike Petrilak, was an avid climber and mountaineer whose mobility had been reduced by a broken hip suffered in the Tetons. George placed the protection bolts, then retreated so that his friend would have the pleasure of the first lead. Mike named the route after Schaeffer’s Beer, his favorite beverage.
