Utah sandstone rock climbing possibly at risk

di

Climbing in areas such as Indian Creek, Castle Valley, Fisher Towers, San Rafael Swell, Valley of the Gods, Texas and Arch Canyons, Lockhart Basin and Comb Ridge may be at risk. The American Access Fund is appealing to climbers to help protect these areas.

Southeastern Utah is one of the most famous climbing destinations in the USA, offering worldclass crack climbing at Indian Creek, adventurous outings up the stunning sandstone towers of Valley of the Gods and much more. At present though, lawmakers are considering two initiatives that may significantly impact access to the unique sandstone cliffs and remote desert towers and consequently the American Access Fund is appealing to climbers for help.

Areas that may be affected include Indian Creek, Castle Valley, Fisher Towers, San Rafael Swell, Valley of the Gods, Texas and Arch Canyons, Lockhart Basin, Comb Ridge, as well as areas yet to be discovered. To find out more about what is at stake, and what precisely the The Public Lands Initiative and Bears Ears National Monument proposals are, visit www.accessfund.org
