|Does anyone have any information about the bolted lines around the corner from Crankenstien? I climbed one of them yesterday (the one on the least steep, most featured face). It was pretty awesome, and when I reached the anchors I discovered there was a second pitch :). 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-.|

|Thanks Bill, Mick, sorry it took me so long to get back to you. I will enter full route info for the 2 routes on the back side (East) of Techweenie soon. I only did the upper parts (what he is calling "pitch 2") these can be reached by dropping off the buttress to the East from the top, takes you right to the base of these routes. The bolted line on the very end of the arete is The Flesherizer, 5.11b. The bolted line (bring small - medium stoppers also for the top) a few feet to the right of that is Creature Feature 5.10a. Enjoy.|

As you walk right from Crankenstein:
The first climb on the face just right, with an obvious low old bolt is "Fear of Flying" described in the old Hill book, 5.8A4 (in 1981, anyway, who knows what a modern rating is).
To the right of that is a chossy-looking chimney (5.9+ in old Hill book).
Right of that is a newer bolted 2-pitch M.Beverly line I think he told me was called "Masterblaster". I've heard it's good but haven't climbed it.
I'm not sure where the 2 climbs D.Milford mentions that start half way up are in relation to MB's route.
Feel free to correct / update me, or contact Marc to sort it out.
