  1. Would it be frowned upon if this rock was cleaned of it’s moss and somebody climbed it?

    • I’ll hesitate to say ‘yes’, since the land is held by the Land Trust. As a former rock climber, I understand the attraction. I’d definitely say ‘no’ to bolts or other permanent protection. The greenstone is very hard, and I remember few to no cracks or other obvious looking routes. But then, I never got beyond 5.11, wo what do I know?

  2. What if I was just to go bouldering on it?
