I counted 10 bolts on August 24, 2006. The spectacular but comparatively easy finish is worth 4 stars.

Make sure you face outwards on the upper stem section for more exposure.

He's right, turn around. Not often can you enjoy the scenery in the midst of the moves. Hangers are set up nicely for this anyway.

Somebody that I was with said that this was more of a novelty route, and I definitely agree - it's not often you get this nice stemming like you do at the top of this route. Other than that, it seems that this route is relatively straight-forward, with the crux actually at the bottom. I almost blew right past that first bolt in the upper section, but the climbing is relatively easy, so it wouldn't have been catastrophic (just don't fall as you will bounce off the slab below).

Love this route! If you have not had a lot of lead experience at the 5.10 level, this route will not disappoint. You will be guaranteed to leave with a sense of real accomplishment, and a natural high that won't lead to a nasty hangover or alcohol poisoning.

First 10 lead! I loved it. Well protected, and such an amazing and rewarding view. Definitely face outwards on the end stemming section. So good!! That being said, get a good look at the top of any route you climb in Tensleep. Every view is absolutely stunning.

Super fun route, enjoy the view, but wear a helmet. When my buddy and I were tying in at the base, a softball sized rock shot down Beerbong's slot right towards where the belayer would stand. Don't want to freak anyone out because its a sick line and rockfall is probably pretty rare but just wear a helmet.

This thing is a blast. Definitely a novelty, but a ton of fun. Cruxy start to nice pockets - bong portion itself is super unique and allows for many different ways to get to the chains.
