Andrewsolow, you are making a fool of yourself. Grow up. Or at least take the process offstage.

Admitting that authority has its perks is common sense. You don't have to love it, you don't have to admire the incumbent, but ignoring reality won't get you anywhere. Negotiate from rock bottom realism, & you may gain.

For this hiker/backpacker, it is heartening to hear a SP core member point out that wilderness areas are important to a spectrum of users. I value SP for the info I find here, for a shared love of granite, & vicarious thrills. I don't enjoy sophomoric displays of macho (or macha, for that matter). I, & other scramblers, am happy to join with serious folk who want to preserve our mountains, & our access to them.

No, I'm not a ranger or a LM or an authority figure of any sort. Have problems with bureaucracy, actually; which is one reason I go to the mountains.

Andrew, please do not take this at all personal....

If the mannerisms in which you and your group approached this issue here with myself and others that questioned your position, are the same as the ones you have displayed towards the authorities at LMRA, then I clearly understand why there are Issues at CTP between climbers and the NPS at LMRA.

Shaking ones fist and constantly demanding to have your way, never works in issues such as these. Just doesn't. It only aggravates it all to the point where it will stalemate and the receiver of your demands will close their doors to you and basically tell you to fk off. That is the reality of the world we live in.

I most highly recommend that you all get yourselves a neutral mediator, ASAP! Someone that understands and has worked WITH the System before, not against it.

Ignore this trolling Andrew. This website isn't about rockclimbing anyway.

Thanks for trying though!!!

Rock Climbers demands and Williamson Rock.... worked/working well there, right Rob.

No where in the ACCESS FUNDS ROCK CLIMBING AREA MGMT MANUAL do I find any action policy as exemplified by Andrew or Gary here regarding the CTP issue.

Maybe I missed it Rob. Could you please point it out for us NON ROCK CLIMBERS where the ROCK CLIMBERS that put this tool together in order to handle issues such as the one at CTP dictate as Andrew & Gary do...please.

Andrew and Gary,

This new twist of potential Native American Treaties within the CTP area, now makes sense, unfortunately.

If the NA's indeed have any prior standing agreement of sorts, i.e. Treaty, within the confines of this entire area, it will in fact take presidence over any existing rules/regs. All it takes is one tribal member to formulate a complaint, formal or informal, and that is all she wrote. I just got off the phone with a friend who is a local USFS LEO, regarding this potential issue of NA Treaties on any Federal Lands. What happens behind the scenes/closed doors regarding this particular issue, needs not be made formally public. When the Order becomes official, it will most likely state a brief sentence that this was in fact the case. That is what he informed me as he has experience in these matters and has been involved in enforcing NA Treaty restrictions on designated Federal Lands.

It would indeed behoove you and the group to seek out if this in fact may be the case. It is Public Info and you being an investigator most certainly can acquire this info very easily and quite rapidly.

And just to remind you, revenue rights are big money to the local Tribes if there are any agreements/Treaties involved. Thus the Cell Phone Towers.

It really pays to be on tap and knowledgeable with all the ins and outs of the area in which one plays and establishes any climbing.... all of em.

Cases in point:

Canyon de Chelley Nat. Mon.

Despite what The Chief is insinuating, no one here believes power drills should be used in a wilderness area.

I beg to differ.
