I've recently seen a fairly large number of fixed draws in the Box. Not sure, given the status as private land, how cool this is as its a visual impact for sure.
Does anyone know if the land owner is ok with fixed draws? If not, maybe they should be removed?
Hate to see access in this neat area gone.

|Good point. The (ostensibly climber-friendly) landowners at Roadside Crag at the Red River Gorge claimed that the unapproved addition of fixed hardware was one of the biggest reason for their decision to close the Red's most popular crag. Worth considering.|

|I'm also concerned about the amount of dog crap that develops in this canyon during the summer. It's all washed out now due to some of the recent heavy rains, but for a while in the middle of the summer, that place was starting to get pretty gross. I think most climbers are pretty good about leaving the canyon to tend to business, but all these little things can lead to a potential closure if we are not careful. The Box is a great place to climb, it would be a shame to lose it.|
