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 email@example.com 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.

1) i didn't bolt the route, so don't blame me....
2) i didn't know that bolts were forbidden in "wilderness areas," i thought bolts placed with "power drills" were forbidden...
sounds like the usfs need to do a better job in letting the rest of us (you know, the tax payer types who fund the usfs...) exactly what we can and cant do on public land....
