      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      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!

BLM closes section of Castle Rocks, ID

I'd say it probably has a lot less to do with 'bureau pricks' and a lot more to do with not getting all the relevant stakeholders to the table from the beginning. Tribal governments are powerful and should not be brought to the table late in the game. It's also the reason you want to avoid doing or proposing things at your crag that will involve, by regulatory or policy mandate, a) the railroads b) the Washington Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation (WDAHP) or c) Tribal governments. Add to that numerous Federal stakeholders and the opportunity to get had is pretty high as you are back to attempting to navigate / peel a regulatory 'onion'.

Actually, I woke up this am thinking of the Shoshone viewpoint. They've seen well over a 100 years of Dantes hell with the government: if this is just a case where they finally got the dice to roll their way for once after all this time, good for them.

Seems pretty lame to just close it to climbing but allow all other uses to continue including hunting, hiking, and grazing. I can understand avoiding and respecting important religious sites, but to just single out climbing just doesn't seem right.

Stupid management decisions are traditional in that area. Twin Sister's climbing ban anyone?

Yeah, hard to tell isn't it? On at least one of those article, when you click on the map, it just brings up a smaller version. :crazy:
