Climber Alert - NPS Climbing Policy Changes

The National Park Service is about to issue a new Director's Order (DO) that could threaten climbing on National Park land.

According to an article on the Access Fund Web site:

NPS Poised to Make it Easier to Ban Climbing

A series of events at the National Park Service has resulted in a DO (Director Order) that could lay the groundwork for restrictions or prohibitions of climbing within the National Parks.

The Access Fund is working with its partners to submit comments on DO #100. The 30-day window for public comment ends on November 18th. You can also make comments on your own.

You can see the complete text of DO #100 here.

Once you've read the DO you can go here to leave your comment.

Remember to keep comments courteous, and offer suggestions and alternatives. The public comment period is not the place for complaints. It is FOP's goal to maintain excellent relations with the NPS by keeping the dialog open and productive. In this way we will continue to keep climbing available at Pinnacles National Park.
