What are the rules here for fixed gear (bolts, pitons etc.)? The potential crag is sitting on land owned by the US Forest Service. It's out in the middle of nowhere and would be a pain in the ass to get to but just curious what the rules are here. I haven't been up close to inspect it yet, just dreaming at the moment.

Depends where it is (which forest), what the land is designated (wilderness), what the fixed gear would be and how it would be installed. Call the managers for that particular forest. You'll get better info from them Canon

You can often get that information online, without bothering the FS and potentially stirring their attention up. The FS sites usually have maps showing wilderness or other specially protected areas. The regional forests may also have their climbing plan available there.

Then just use good sense and don't make a mess of the place.
