Pulling through the crux on Weenies Go Like This. ...

Description 

Fun, pumpy route. Start on a low-angle slab into a roof. One hard move and you're to a big hold. Sustained to the anchors after that.

Location 

On the opposite side of Trash Tower from Garbageboy. Up the middle of the face. The route to it's left is Trash Compactor.

Protection 

3 bolts to a 2-bolt chained anchor

The route suggests 11b, but I think it is has one 11a move at the 1st bolt with some cruiser 5.10, but pumpy climbing afterwards to the anchors. I recommend not blowing the anchor clip as it could result in a tweaked ankle.

"...I recommend not blowing the anchor clip as it could result in a tweaked ankle." Hehehe. Yeah, and a nice rope burn across my, I mean, one's achilles tendon too! Ouch!

Top roped this route a while back and finally got around to leading it. Getting to the second bolt is strong and a bit sequency but still fun. I found the crux to actually be getting above the 3rd bolt as the hands were not as obvious. Took a fall there but then got my life figured out. After one hard move there, the rest to the anchors is definitely a grade easier.
