January 29 --

The Access Fund has placed the call out for assistance as access and camping are once again affected by proposed management planning in Yosemite National Park. From AF Executive Director, Brady Robinson:

Fellow Climbers,

We need your help to influence the latest Merced River Plan, which could restrict climbing access and camping in Yosemite Valley, depending on how the Park prepares its new revised user capacity program. At issue is access to iconic climbs including those found on The Rostrum, Cookie Cliff, and Middle Cathedral Rock (everything mile on either side of the river). This plan will also affect all travel through the management area to locations just outside the river corridor, which brings into play all climbing in Yosemite Valley including El Capitan and even Half Dome. Another consequence of this litigation is the increased likelihood that camping will become even more scarce while the number of lodging units remains largely unchanged.

Please write Yosemite National Park by February 4 and support the preservation of climbing access in the Valley! With our easy-to-use letter writing tool, it only takes two minutes to make your voice heard. Thanks for your support, Your Friends at the Access Fund.

They have the tool fixed and it only takes a minute or less. Remember you can't bitch if you did nothing to prevent it.

at "access.org" it says you needed to have your comments in by Feb 4. Looks like they disabled the letter they have pre written for everyone to sign. Hope for the best.
