DescriptionA nice 2 pitch line up the west side of the south face of the Beer Bottle.
P1: (5.11, 120') Walk up & right along the base of the spire, then traverse left to the start. Place 1 or 2 thin pieces, then face climb past 2 bolts + some optional small gear. Continue up past a short loose section to a fabulous finger crack. Climb this until it tips out, then up & right past a bolt (crux) to a nice stance under a roof. Out left then up a left facing corner (small & medium nuts) in the limestone band on nice face & crack moves, and step right onto the ledge. A nice belay ledge & 2 bolts await atop the limestone band.
P2: (5.11-, 80') Up and left from the belay, passing a bolt, then up a thin crack (10+/11-) that widens to locker fingers. Continue up the great finger crack past an overlap to easier ground, then up and right to the top.
Descent: Continue up & over the spire to a bolted rappel anchor on the opposite (north) side. 1 single rope rappel gets you to the ground, then scramble back to the start.
