Nick Holland Asks- What Were These Used For?

Joey-

I’ve found dozens of eye bolts set in outcrops or large boulders across Gloucester. This one (see attached) is from Dogtown. There are many throughout the woods of West Gloucester. Typically I find them at the top of the outcrop or rock, often with a piece of wire still attached. They are much smaller than the beefy hardware associated with quarrying.

What were these used for?
