Does anyone have slightly better instructions for getting there? Dec 11, 2015
iBolt  
1) i didn't bolt the route, so don't blame me....
that said:
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.... Mar 26, 2012
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 wardandpaula@yahoo.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.

Thanks,
