Description

Start both hands on a jug flake left of the start to the The Turning Point. Move left across the roof, past some breaking rock (should clean up a bit with traffic) At the left corner of the boulder, the crux is getting up to the lip. Several types of heel hooks on this one.

Location

This is on top of the BBC, same boulder as the The Turning Point. Start on a two-handed jug and climb left then up.

Protection

The landing is complex and multi-leveled. Falls while heel hooking could be chaotic, so be solid.

Still claiming the FA on this, huh.

Yeah, this problem has been done before for sure. I did this back in 2002 or so, and I am sure it was done long before that. I thought it would be funny if this thing was called "The Point of no Return" as a play on words from Turning Point, but Breaking Point is a suitable name no doubt. Dec 12, 2009
I couldn't find it in the Colo B1 book, but it has definitely been done. Either way, way to go, those holds are sketchy! I wonder if it would clean up nicely or would it just remain flakey? Dec 1, 2009

I'm not certain, but based on your description Joshua, I believe this problem is listed in Benningfield's first Colorado Bouldering guide and was done in the 1990s. Check out the original Colorado Bouldering and feel free to clarify. If I'm wrong, I'll delete this comment. And yes, that landing is complex to say the least - almost worthy of an R rating - with lots of questionable flakes under the roof before the lip. Nov 20, 2009
