I recently moved into a newer home (+10 years old). I have started to remodel one of the bathrooms. Under the bathroom sink there are two drain system pipes extending out of the wall. The first is the sink drain and connects to the sanitary system through a trap. I don't know what the second is. It has a threaded cap that has holes in it. It appears that the height of the cap can be adjusted. What is it and can I relocate inside the wall cavity? I plan to install a pedestal sink and do not want to see this pipe.

Sounds like a Studor vent that allows air to enter the pipes .........Installed instead of venting the sink drain pipe thru the roof.......NO you can't bury it in the wall......
