Help Us Preserve Climbing At Pinnacles

Help us preserve climbing at the park!
Work has begun on the creation of a General Park Management Plan for Pinnacles National Monument. This plan will include a Climbing Management Plan which will effect us all.
At this point the Park is doing what it calls: "scoping" for the plan. This basically means soliciting feedback from Park users regarding what they use the park for and what they would like to see done with the park in the future.
So, what does this mean to you?
Well, it is simple: NOW is the time to let the park know that there are a lot of us out here that climb at the Park and that it is important to us that climbing remain a supported activity for the Park Service.
What can you do to help?
Easy, Fill out the Parks scoping questionnaire.
Even easier - FOP has put the form on the FOP Web site so you can fill it out and send it in one easy step.
