The bolt could possibly be an artifact left over from when Verplank Colvin surveyed the Adirondacks in the 1870's. I believe that Noonmark was a mostly forested summit until Colvin and his crew cleared it in order to facilitate conductting the survey (as is the case with several other Adirondack summits.

The obvious crack with the lag bolt. The bolt has no purpose except to make us scratch our heads.
