More information:
I started climbing again in the fall of 2012 after more than 25 years away from the sport (because my son got bitten by the climbing bug), and I feel a bit like Rip Van Winkle waking up after a l-o-n-g sleep. LOTS of changes. "Sport" climbing was only just coming into the scene back in the mid-80's, and it was a Euro thing and frowned on. I climbed quite a bit in New Hampshire, and the only thing that I knew about Rumney was that the town had some great swimming holes. Nobody wore helmets, all climbing ropes were 11 millimeters, climbers wore swami belts, and most of the time, if bolts weren't placed on the lead, the perpetrator would have to face the Spanish Inquisition. The climbing scene is very different now, but not worse. It may even be better . . .
