Fun, straight-forward, slab route. The first bolt is too close to the ground to be useful in a fall, and it is fairly thin to the high 2nd bolt. Clipping the 2nd bolt may be the crux.


The 7th bolted route from the right side of the wall. Goes around a tree in a crack at the top. You'll see the blank section at the top of "Fellowship Of The Buttonhead" next to it.


Bolts and anchors.

The low worthless bolt is the identifier of this route. Crux is getting to the 2nd bolt.

Just to note: Yep, the first bolt is now worthless. When the climb was first put up the first bolt was probably ten or so feet higher. The canyon floor has significantly risen on the left side of the wall over the year. We use to swim below My Precious after the rains.

The much-maligned first bolt has a bent/smashed hanger. The second is now the first. This is a touch spicy. Gear can go in crack to right to protect traverse- then clean after clipping the bolt. I recommend .5 Camalot and 0 metolious as larger gear would be in bad rock.
