Ron hasn't exactly invented a new issue, he's just persisting in Ronbo fashion in making sure that we think about it. Finding the right balance between conservation and recreation in parks and park-like lands, while protecting their values, is a near-Talmudic proposition.

Worth a mention:

http://www.suwa.org/2012/09/28/new-atv-route-threatens-indian-creek/

a new ATV trail is earmarked for running under the Bridger Jacks. Yikes.

Comments to the BLM by Oct 5.

Nice job Jim. I hope you get a good turn out. I would love to make it but 12 hours and no vacation will not allow.

Mike, we have over 50 rsvp's but, the more the merrier. Taking off for a day in the Black tomorrow...birthday present for a young climber I'm mentoring.

Bump in the hope that all you folks who have the time to spend festering on the internet can take a few minutes out of your day to put a stop to the ATV trail running up the bridger Jack camping road:

see crunch's post above and do something now.

Off to Indian Creek early on Thursday for the Volunteer day & Party.

maybe a little splitter-crack action?

Donini called yesterday after making a "re-supply run" to Moab.

All is well and all are welcome! (if you are willing to do some volunteer work on Sat.)

We are bringing a large pumpkin-pie, a little whipped-cream, and some fine-box-wine to the event for the Sat night party.

Climbing was "on-hold"---but, in between storms: we climbed to an Anasazi ruin.

Next day was a "great" shared work day, and on Sunday


We Climbed!

Ron,

Earlier on you mention stablising the rock. Here in the UK we have a couple of areas where either masonary stabliser, or believe it or not, French Polish/laquer are used to harden the sandstone.

It's not too onerous a task on our little climbs, but on the scale of your crags you might need a crop sprayer....

Useful for particular hold or spots though.
