I bolted this sometime after bolting weenies go like this. After climbing a nasty crux down low traverse slightly right into the weeinies route.


This route is located to the left of "weenies go like this".


5 bolts and anchors

Unless the hold that broke off was a bucket - and I mean a bucket, there is no way that this route is 11c/d. While certainly not as sustained, I felt it was harder than any single move on Moat Jump, Against Nature, or Gangland. Perhaps on par with Little Evil or Crimp Chimp? Of course, maybe I'm just weak and seeing as this was my first time on the route, it felt abnormally hard...who knows. Nonetheless, I found the opening sequence to be fun and very bouldery all the way to the third bolt where it merges with the easier upper section of Weenies. I didn't encounter much in the way of choss (thanks Supra?), but if you're arachnophobic, you may want to avoid this as there were about a bazillion monstrous spiderwebs on it.

6' of easy climbing to a good rest, then a great, sequential, 3-move V3 boulder problem at the 2nd bolt, probably harder for short people, another good rest, then the 5.10+ finish of Weenies.
