Mountain Project's determination of some of the classic, most popular, highest rated routes for Big Rock Cave:
This area is in a designated wilderness (I didn't know either).
Somebody recently bolted a sport route at the cave, which has come up as a problem in a discussion between the AF and Forest Service.
If whoever bolted out there would like to PM me at firstname.lastname@example.org I will keep you confidential. Or, you can send me a note with letters cut out of magazines and no return address to: Ward Smith, 105 Montague Road, Wendell MA 01379.
I am guessing that whoever did this did not know it was within a wilderness area.
