Quartz Band Span


Point Break tackles the green lichen streak right of where Tsunami veers slightly left to the flake rest. Unlike Tsunami there are few if any intermediate holds between quartz bands making for some big moves on your way to the anchors.

Guaranteed to be better than the old or new versions of the movie Point Break, this route should not be missed.


Point Break climbs the first four bolts of Tsunami then hangs a right climbing the swath of green lichen and quartz bands for 3 more bolts left of the arete.


7 bolts to anchors with carabiners.
