Comments: Unfortunately this is no longer as good a pitch for beginner trad leaders as it was before the rock scaling. The removal of that column of rock has left a few suspect holds, and the tree snapped off during the operation. It was once 'G' rated but now is probably 'PG-13' for a novice (good gear not as obvious or plentiful.)

Comments: Fun route. We did this in 6 pitches with a 70m rope (combined the final three into two). Didn't take a #4 but would have placed it if we had. Placed only 3 nuts on the entire route. Last pitch is pretty run out but easy. Somewhat complicated descent.

Comments: Really fun pitch.
Build an anchor on the right just shy of the end with a few 1/2"-3/4" pieces and lower. (If you're going to walk this far, everyone in the party should get to lead it. Last guy gets a second lap.)

Comments: Cut seven layers of tat off the 4.5" belay/rappel tree. The tree creaked audibly when weighted and was scarred by the slings.
Installed two stainless bolts with double rings a few feet to the right.
The summit has a large dead tree that used to be an anchor. There is a vertical glue-in anchor now that works either direction - rap the route or rap to the block at the base of Gambit where the trail is nice.

Comments: Chris, regarding rope drag on P4: right at that corner, place a medium-sized nut upside down (with the wire pointing up). It's not there to catch a fall, but the rope runs against the nut and won't jam in the crack. Works like a charm.

Comments: All bolts on Point Break have now been upgraded to 1/2" stainless.
The tree at the top of P2 creaks audibly when weighted. Might submit an app for a bolted anchor on the wall just above where the ends of a 70m rope reach when rapping off the upper anchor.

Comments: Andrew - pound on that block/flake between the two P1 bolts next time: it vibrates with a resonant 'boom'. Lobbing onto that enticing looking #0.75 Camalot placement may prove catastrophic some day if the block detaches.

Vague potentially helpful beta: keep a little lower as you head right.

Comments: The first bolt has been replaced. The remaining bolts are on the list for replacement, since they are plated steel with stainless hangers. They are 3.5" x 3/8" Rawls which are in average condition (they are somewhat sheltered from the rain) - but they are much better/stronger than many old lead bolts in the canyon. The replacement job will be difficult, since this overhanging route traverses so much and there are no good aid hook placements. A good extension ladder will help....

Comments: I led the 1st pitch Tuesday - it's fun. The climbing is similar to Body Tremors but scarier due to fragile rock.

For the record, though:
The application did not include any bolts on P1, and ACE did not push the issue of P1 bolts in either direction.

That's why I never got around to climbing P1 during the bolt application process for P2. I think P1 is 'R' rated, but that's the choice of the FA.

Comments: In the cleanup last fall, the big horizontal one cut loose when another rock grazed it. Precarious was a good descriptor. Good riddance.
