Wilderness Fixed Anchor Policy Update
The National Park Service has released an updated draft of its wilderness management policies. The update covers provisions specific to climbing fixed anchors. Iconic climbing areas in the U.S., including Yosemite and wilderness climbing areas in Joshua Tree, would be governed by this new policy. The Access Fund is soliciting the input of the climbing community to inform our policy position on this critically important issue.
Background on the issue from Access Fund website
Let the AF know what your thoughts are… wilderness protection is a key component of the National Park’s mission, remember, but so is allowing recreation on our public lands. You are representing the climbing community so keep it clean…
