Reading the recent discussion of bolting at Cathedral reminded me of a pet peeve of mine. A lot of climbers have no friggin idea who owns the land on which they climb. If you havent noticed, land ownership is a big deal in this country. Knowing who the landowner is, and what the rules are, can have a direct impact on your (our) continued access to the cliffs.
So I thought I would post a little quiz. If you climb at any/all of these 10 areas, do you know who owns the land:
Otter Cliffs, Maine
Crow Hill, MA
College Rock, MA
Rose Ledge, MA
Quincy Quarries, MA
Smugglers Notch, VT
If you have a favorite climbing area...dont know who owns the land...have never spoken to the owner/manager...dont know what the rules are...or the future plans for the area...maybe that's not good. Just something to think about. A free beverage to the first person to gets them all correct.
