Comments: I recently moved to Massachusetts, so I'm not extremely savvy on the local etiquette. I've noticed there are a lot of disclaimers about the wear on the trees being used as toprope anchors. Is there a reason that bolted toprope anchors haven't been added to some of the more popular areas? I'm from the west where it seems that bolts are a lot more common. It just seems to me that a few inconspicuous bolts would have far less impact on the local crags and a few trees would be saved. Thoughts?

Comments: I replaced the anchors on this route today (5/31/2008). Hopefully they'll stick around this time.

Comments: It looks like routes 5, 6, and 7 are graded harder than the Ruckman guidebook says. I haven't climbed either of the three, but I was just curious about the grade discrepancy.
