April 13, 2013 · Posted in Archives, Call To Action, Climber Alert, Events, General, News · Comments Off on Rattlesnake Canyon closed due to Vandalism! 

The popular Indian Cove accessible crag known as Rattlesnake Canyon has been closed to all access while the JTNP deepens the investigation of the vandals defacing rock and creating blight in our National Park.
Here is what the mainstream media is saying http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-joshua-tree-graffiti-20130413,0,3668905.story

This link will take you to the official announcement by JTNP on the closure.

“We hope it’s isolated. We’re hoping that the public will help us out by reporting any damage or vandalism that they see.” One ranger said to the Press.

FOJT and the Access Fund are in dialogue with the Park on remedies and potential activation of the climbing community to combat this epidemic of impact and poor taste.  Please feel free to share your feelings, or better yet solution ideas, to this blog and we will air them at our Board Retreat nexst week.

Thank you!
