Techweeny Buttress taken from somewhere above the ...

If micro edges and clipping bolts are more your style, the clean face in the middle of the formation offers three sport routes.
The top of the formation is seen from the La Luz trail. Upon toping out on the formation follow a solid trail for 30 yards back to the La Luz.
From the crest parking lot start down the La Luz (0.5 miles). Once at the trail junction follow a faint climbers trail south into Echo Canyon.

It looks like there are at least two (maybe three) cool looking lines up the buttress around the corner from Crankenstien which could form a second pitch for this route.

Bolted by Dave Milford 10+ years ago. I can't remember the names, but I believe they are 5.10+/.11-.
