I climbed Tree Keys on Saturday afternoon and saw what plytheman was referring to. it's below and left of the bolt that's after the chimney. it's one of those things that I'm a bit nervous to start messing with 'cause you never know how much will come with it. tho I don't really feel "responsible" for the climb, if I get a chance I may try to get out there again next week and see if I can pry it out.

I have an apartment for rent in my house. It's basically a efficiency, with a separate kitchen/living/dining room and bedroom. It is located between Cathedral Ledge and Echo Lake, 5 minutes by bike from IME! $650/month includes electricity and gas heat. We require a 1 year lease, 1st month + security deposit and references. There is no smoking and no pets other than a cat. It is suitable for 1 person only.

PM me here if you are interested.

...sometimes "widely established bouldering area" is open to interpretation.  Which I think might have been the case for Heliotropic (sp?).

so who decided that the little valley below Humphrey's, usually referred to as Humphrey's Hollow, is a "widely established bouldering area"? is that term used in Tim Kemple's book from 10+ years ago? is it in NEBouldering, Mountain Project or, God forbid, SuperTopo?

CD - it's very obvious what you're trying to do - drum up support for chopping those bolts, but frankly I don't buy it. if you or your friend didn't document the climb, and there wasn't obvious chalk on the climb at the time, how would anyone know that "boulder" has been climbed? heck, I would bet that Michael Hartrick has climbed on almost every scrappy little crag in the area, and he didn't document hardly any of them. you don't hear him whining when someone found it 10/20/30 years layer, cleaned a route and bolted it - do you?  gimmie a break...please

BTW - everyone knows who I am (Al Hospers). who is CD?

I see what you are trying to get at, but instead of condemning people for putting up lines on un recorded climbs, maybe you should focus on getting boulderers to better record their FA's.

so why do you feel that the Humphrey's Valley an "established bouldering area"? is that written down somewhere?

I have the same thoughts as Ward.  But sometimes "widely established bouldering area" is open to interpretation.  Which I think might have been the case for Heliotropic (sp?).

...Society and Solitude #5 - after having the 750 ml growler today at home (after another MTB ride) - might just be one of the best beers I've had. It's that good!

Just wondering if anyone in the valley has a room for rent?  I have a friend in town who is interested in renting a room in a house or a small apartment.

Thanks

I am curious to hear some opinions. here is my question to all you fine folk: is it appropriate to be bolting any boulders that are located in an established bouldering area? should we respect and protect these limited resources as we do our cliffs and crags?

Boulder are primarly a large rock (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boulder. So, a crag is not a boulder and few of it had more than 20 feet.

Bouldering, the activity, as define contemporary is: "Bouldering is a form of rock climbing that is performed without the use of ropes or harnesses" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bouldering.

use as a training to mountaineering and free climbing, bouldering evolve into a very hard ethic of climbing with is own cotation (V-1 to V-...).

So, If you don't use a rope...you don't need bolt...

Depends on how big it is. there are 3 and 4 bolt climbs that people seem to enjoy.
