Whether it’s exploring new boulder fields or multi-pitch routes in the backcountry, sometimes an unexpected overnight with a crashpad as a blanket or legs shoved in our pack is a real possibility. Climbers call this predicament a bivy.
However, we created The Bivy at Whetstone to encourage you to hunker down in style and comfort. Grab a snack and a drink and stick around to connect with our staff and the climbing community, It'll be the most comfortable bivy you’ll ever have.
Visit The Bivy for complimentary coffee in the morning or a glass of beer, wine, or seltzer during our evening hours! We proudly serve local Colorado microbrews on tap, from your favorite craft breweries around the area!
Great news! We're extending the Bivy hours this fall!
Starting in October, the Bivy will be open every Tuesday through Friday from 4:30 - 9:30.
Until then, the Bivy will be open Wednesday and Thursday night from 4:30 - 9:30.
Come thirsty, leave happy and fill that post-crush craving. We're serving delicious snacks and local beer, wine, and seltzers! During other hours, we are still happy to offer to-go drinks. Please see our takeout menu at the Bivy and front desk!
*A cold beer or glass of wine can be a great reward for a hard send or a completed project. Please keep in mind that once you decide to have a drink, your hand will be stamped and you will not be permitted to climb, belay, use the fitness center, or take a yoga class for the rest of your day.*
