|I'm pretty sure the rebar steps predated the City's establishment as a National Reserve...|

Ditto that. They're not even sure when or who might have placed the rebar on Bath Rock. Might even pre-date most climbing in the area (ie, pre Alpenbock or Steinfell folks).
My guess is it's most likely a local effort done in conjuction with one of the old promotional events way back in the '30s to '50s or so. Whoever did it, actually did a nice job. For a climber, though, that down climb is pretty reasonable, although, would be spooky as an onsight downclimb.

|It's kinda good to have them there, I think. A lot of folks take the kids up there, so it helps them.|

My friend and I climbed Loch ness Monster on the east side of Bath rock the morning of Saturday 6/15/13. To make a long story short, we accidentally left a #2 (yellow) BD camalot on the small ledge right below the first bolt. This camalot was not clipped to the rope so upon completing the climb I forgot to clean it. I realized about two hours later that the cam was missing and ran back to bath rock and soloed up to the ledge to find the camalot missing.
If you found this yellow camalot and are in the need of some extra karma points please pm me. I'd really appreciate it.
