Promontory is currently undergoing a facelift, thanks to the ASCA and some motivated locals. We're replacing the bolts on as many routes as possible with titanium glue-ins.
If a route has tape on the first bolt, please refrain from climbing it. The glue takes time to cure, and climbing on bolts prematurely may compromise their integrity.
Also, please DO NOT remove any fixed ropes or draws. These may be left for short periods of time to speed the rebolting process, and will be removed as soon as possible, but they ARE NOT booty.

|If you mean the one on the south arete, it is called Shrapnel and is supposed to be 11c/d. I haven't done it as the bolts look to be in sad shape.|

Centipede was a great introduction to ocean area climbing: dramatic surf pounding nearby, steep/solid rock, and interesting moves. As a Colorado climber I was appalled at the condition of the bolt heads, but some of them might be 19 years old! Could not find a 2-bolt anchor at the top as mentioned in the local guidebook, but rigged okay TR anchor off two s/s bolts about 10 meters back and left of the master point.
