Select the pen tool (g) then hold down the Alt/Option key or the Ctrl/Cmnd key and you can not only access all of the Pen Tool options, but you will have the ability to draw selections around vertices, select points or handles on any visible path in the comp panel, and do just about anything you want to with the path. It makes life a lot easier. Here's my basic tutorial on creating, editing, and animating vector paths and it works with any path, even motion paths that you can see in the Comp or Layer panel.

tapping G repeatedly should cycle through all the tools in the menu.  Same is true for all the multi tool menus.  Although I see in your screenshot that only the pen a feathering tool are showing the hotkey.  Does tapping G only cycle through those two tools for you?

I dont see that working. Holding ALT lets me wiggle the vertex. But when I hold CTRL to drag the vertex... the cursor turns into a "negative pen" (remove vertix).
