Does anyone know if the bolts have been replaced? Is it safe to top rope any of the Duma Point routes right now??? Thanks!

I was there a couple of weeks ago. The top anchors are in good condition (2 of the 3 were good 1/2" stainless bolts). As for the lead bolts, I wouldn't trust them to hold body weight. The bottom hanger on each of the routs has been hammered flat so that you can't clip it to discourage anyone from leading the routes (it didn't stop me thoughSly). So if you do decide to lead anything, just treat it like a free solo, but you shouldn't have any problems TRing the routes.
