BLM Soliciting Feedback on New Restrictions

The U.S. Bureau of Land Management is seeking feedback over their decision to stop rock climbing activities at Cedar Fields and parts of Cassia and Power counties in Idaho.

From MagicalValley.com‘s Times-News story:

The U.S. Bureau of Land Management is looking to stop rock climbing activities at Cedar Fields to protect cultural resources. It would also end climbing in BLM-owned land in the Castle Rocks Inter-Agency Recreation Area. Climbing would be halted till an environmental assessment can determine resource uses in that area.

The BLM wants the public to weigh in on the issue as they attempt to protect almost 1,550 acres containing archeological and historical resources which could be damaged by climbing.

It looks like that means there will be one less thing to do in Idaho…
