I worked this issue with Eric Murdock at the AF, and it looks like the Forest Service picked Devil's Gulch Road as the southern boundary even though all the climbing areas on MP.com were not burned.
Five Points ranges from a not so friendly 5.6 to a stellar 5.9. All climbs are trad. Most climbs use a standard rack (few nuts and cams), but there is a gnarly piece of off-width to the far left. So if you plan on that, bring the off-width “bear clubbers”.
I took a nasty fall on this one, along with the 350 lbs. rock I was holding on to. The rock is split in half laying on the short trail as you approach, so check it out.
That being said, all the routes were mostly cleaned and should be good to go, but take care because it is the BTC and rock does have the tendency to move unannounced.
Cheers and Climb on!
Note: If you are planning to hit Linger Longer rock as well, please be conscious that Linger Longer is on private land. The guy that owns it is super cool and is ok with smart, courteous climbers.
P.S. Allen, we heard you were going to fix the bolt ladder on Linger Longer and do a little paint job; cheers to you for keeping the BTC from turning into a fanatically bolted area!
