Opening the weapons bay on Bombs Over Tripoli

Description 

First climbed by Dave Bingham in 1984 with only three bolts!! The route was retro-bolted in 1988. Begin by climbing a large juniper then stepping on to a thin technical face. Make a difficult move to a layback (crux) which gains a very thin insecure crack.

Location 

The route is located on the northeast face of Parkinglot Rock. Look for bolts leading to a small seam. This route has great shade in the afternoon, making it an excellent choice for warm days.

Protection 

Draws to 2-bolt anchor

Great route; the crack is incredibly insecure, with only a few good fingerlocks. The final traverse beneath the anchors definitely keeps it sustained as well. Difficult second clip.

Currently missing third bolt. It fell off as I was rapping down to clean it this weekend, I couldn't find the nut to replace it

I was there a few weeks ago, and found the bolt was still missing. Try to stick-clip past it but, could not find a stick long enough. Talk to a ranger that day and informed him of the missing hanger. He said he would replace it the next day, but never had a chance to return and verify.

Thank You Brad!! Brad has just gone in and retro fitted this route!! after the third hanger went missing again last week, Brad and another ranger went to replace it. I believe (did not go verify with my own eyes) that they also replaced the anchors and a few other suspect bolts. should be ready to go.
