And to add to this entire rigamorole (sp?), I was told by a Ranger at Peter's Kill, that, the use of trees, is NOT, in fact, prohibited, but in the interest of conservation it is strongle advised that trees not be used as anchors.
I have grown fairly intimate with the area this season and have never even thought about using a tree for an anchor. And I have been able to construct all the anchors I've needed with a "standard" gunks rack. No extra mile long static or webbing or anything else.
I was also recently told by a ranger that the bolts that are currently in place have been placed by local guide services so as the PIPC is not liable for the bolts.
