im just curious as to who controls/regulates the climbing here. i have never been here, but will make it my home come may when im home from utah. i understand that there is a lot of top ropes and trad leads. im not interested in making any sport routes, maybe a couple bolts connecting some cracks if need be. so i quess my question is can i bolt without running into some problems with the park rangers and hurt the climbing, so little there actually is.

Scott, I live in East Randolph NY which is aprox. 40 min from rim rock. I have climbed their but mostly lead and top rope. Their are plenty of good anchors to where you really don't have to use bolts. Rimrock is in the Allegheny National Forest and they might have a prob. with bolts not really sure. Hope this helps and maybe we will see you their. Till then climb safe. erac14730@yahoo.com

I don't think you'll have much luck w/ the bolts. They've been really big on keeping the cliff area clean and fixing it up. No harm in checking though. Check w/ the Rangers.

well, i climbed at rim rocks and was shocked to see what had lain on top of the cliffs. stone walkways and wooden stair cases. bolts are an eye sore, but this?!

some one placed bolts in hearts content for use as top rope anchors. ive heard that it was the park rangers.

yes it is perfectly ok to climb at rim rock. the only thing the rangers "requested" was that i didn't use the man made railings or posts for anchors.

Check out Lions Den and Indian Rocks guys. Ridgway Pa. Plenty of bolts and enough routes to keep you occupied for a couple weekends. If you want a tour, send me an e-mail at hbeimel@allstate.com.
