Excellent single-pitch route with full value. Combining this with Dry Creek Spire and Corndog Spire (both stone's throw away) makes for a nice day.

Approach from Dry Creek parking lot. Beer Bottle is the stumpy spire in front of the main Dry Creek Spire. Start from the saddle between these two formations with a walking limestone traverse, crimp your way up diagonally left past 4 bolts (5.10 face) and sink into the friendly corner system. Follow the low-angle 5.8 corner to the top, the proceed to single-rope rappel down east face.
