Unecessary Bolt on Pick-A-Dilly (5.11b) Crowders...

Description 

Lambert and Shull guidebook calls this route "Short but awe-inspiring."

Climb past a low crux on steep ground to a blank face where you reach left to large holds on the arete (there is a holly tree in the way there but you have to deal with it). After the initial steep section the ground gets easier. Finish at two bolt anchors.

Location 

Pick-A-Dilly is at the far left side of the backside of Middle Finger Wall. Easily recognized by its steep terrain and the lone bolt low on the route.

Protection 

Small to medium cams, 1 bolt. Most commonly toproped.

Sorry for the late response, but there's a bolt down low. It's in the topo in the latest guidebook version.
