The Access Fund has joined Patagonia and other plaintiffs in a federal lawsuit against Donald Trump and Ryan Zinke.

To help in this fight, join the Access Fund and, if already a member, this would be a great time for an end of the year donation.

I'm glad to see another political body join the Frey, though I don't think climbers, per see, are in danger of losing much in this. Unless of course a strip mine appears at say, the selfish with all..

I think the bigger tragedy is going to be the lack of protection for the land, and the loss of Native American tradion and cultural historic places and artifacts. Kind of like putting a mining road through Chartres or something. It's just not going to be the same.
looking sketchy there...

Glad to see the Access Fund join the fight against this travesty and illegal land grab by the extraction industry.

On the other hand, if the trend continues, I could order new "El Cap" brand granite counter tops for the kitchen...

So the AF is in favor of the fixed-anchor ban?

There is / was no "fixed anchor ban" in Bears ears.

That's an Arches / Canyonlands NATIONAL PARK thing
