They sound like terrorists. Or patriots. Either way, sounds pretty Utarded to me.

Nevadastan, is the proper pronunciation, duder.

Edit; Pardon me on the Utah bit. I guess his claim goes back to when it was Utard territory?

I am sure Indianclimber, to her credit, is not up to speed, or more aptly
down to speed, with all the latest 'events' that have transpired here, let
alone all the impotent threads.

Fees are imposed on national park lands. Entrance fees. Some fees were tried for using national forest land and yes, climbers were against it. You have to pay a fee to use the national forest land around Sedona. Its called the red rock pass. You can complain about it. I have. I have no problem with this guy fighting these fees But his arguments are poor and so are his methods.

Its not whether this guy is against it or not. Its how he has gone about it. Blockading law enforcement is not a very good idea.

Most people complain about fishing licenses, but we still pay it. My own thought on fishing licenses is that their needs to be a national license, with the majority of the money going to the state it was bought in. This would mean you wouldn't have to buy licenses in every state you want to fish in. But that is another subject.

If this guy had a case, I am willing to bet that the Nevada Cattlemen's association would have come out for him. But they haven't.

Who is profiting from climbing on BLM land? Grazing fees are just part of the business if you want to use public land for profit. And climbers impacts are inconsequential compared to grazing. Your comparison is retarded.

Red herring for dinner eh?

The NPS charges for bivy permits.

Denali levies fees as well.



Truth is, if there were no motorized travel in the national parks then there would be no problem.

The NPS's problems are of their own making.

The NPS charges you to get into the park. Which means that you couldn't climb unless you pay that fee. So in essence they charge a fee to climb.

I didn't say anything about BLM land. I did not say anything about user fees on BLM land, though I believe you need a fishing license to fish on BLM land in California. If I am wrong, then I would love to be corrected. That would be a user fee.

There is a fee to use National forest land around Sedona. It is called the red rocks pass.

Anytime there's a P-Falcon Closure or any crag location gets shut down, the storm from this community begins.


No difference.

I have yet to see climbers calling in a militia, or blockading rangers from doing their jobs. Have you?
