Comments: Fortunately, most of the climbing is still open at LSM. It's possible NOC Area and perhaps Dragon Area are affected by the recent changes, but I haven't been there recently to check (my understanding is there's some signage?). The northern boulder areas has been closed for quite some time. I believe there was mention to harden the Chute Trail in the final Rock Outcrop Management Plan that was published. Perhaps things will change after that happens.

Comments: Understandable; and there's a legitimate question about a cam being required for a bolted route at an almost entirely bolted crag. I would still like to know who's active with a drill in our area, so if you or anyone else reading has any information, please send me a message. Not trying to stir anything up.

Comments: At the very least, it'd be nice to know who is putting in new bolts/routes here.

Comments: Overall, the bolt conditions are good. No obvious signs of rust or corrosion. Those spinners have been spinners for... I'm not even sure how long. Quite some time. We should probably put them on them on the to-do list, but they seem to be holding pretty well. Everyone is responsible for their own personal safety, but I don't consider them unsafe.
