I've heard rumors that they are closing down the Rat Caves in the Gorge and shaving all the bolts. Is this correct?

No, there was misunderstanding there a few weeks ago involving climbers and rangers, where the rangers talked about chopping bolts. The whole community sent lots of emails and it was later stated by the rangers that they had no plans of shutting it down or chopping bolts. It seems the rangers were just trying to scare the climbers off or something. You can read more about it on the facebook groups portland oregon climbing community and cascade corridor climbers.

I don't use facebook... That's a relief. Thanks for the heads up.
