      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Indian Creek/Bears Ears - deadline 4/11

Recommended Posts


"In the wake of President Trump’s illegal reduction of Bears Ears National Monument, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is working to prepare a Monument Management Plan (MMP) for the reduced monument sub-units (Shash Jáa and Indian Creek). The MMP could further institutionalize the illegal National Monument reduction and will only protect about 15% of the original Bears Ears landscape.

While we are still fighting the Bears Ears National Monument reduction in court, we must also participate in this MMP process, despite the fact that it is premature and based on an illegal action. We would like to see this issue settled in court before participating in a MMP process, however the climbing community must engage to ensure that the situation does not go from bad to worse.

Climbers will need to fight for a voice in the planning process and to get fair representation on the mandated Monument Advisory Committee. Unlike the original Bears Ears National Monument proclamation, rock climbing is no longer acknowledged in President Trump’s illegal Proclamation 9681 that is the basis for this planning process.

The stakes are very high—there are approximately 60 documented crags and towers, including a significant part of Indian Creek, within the reduced Shash Jáa and Indian Creek monument units. There are 2 ways that you can help:"
