Hi There

I'm sure that more than a few of you have been to Australia and climbed at some of our excellent climbing areas such as Mount Arapiles, The Grampians and The Blue Mountains.

Well, the Plan of Management for Sydney Harbour National Park, which has some of the best sea cliff climbing in Oz, is coming up for review. Climbing has been effectively banned in the park since the first Plan of Management was drafted in 1998 and in a very uncharacteristic move by the National Park and Wildlife Service, they have set up a public forum on what activities should be allowed in the park.

We are currently trying to rally as many reponses as possible to prove to the Nationaal Parks and Wildlife Servise that climbers aren't just a voiceless fringe group and rock climbing is a valid form of recreation and should be permitted in the Park.

Here is the link to the National Parks public forum. It only takes 5 minutes to register and have your say. It doesn't have to be an essay. Simply, point out that rock climbing is a valid form of recreation and you believe it should be permitted in the park. Any response would be greatly appreciated.

Just think, you could be getting off a plane in Sydney and legally cranking great sandstone routes, next to one of the most beautiful harbours in the world, less than an hour later.

Here's a taste of what could be.

As I said , any positive response would be greatly appreciated.

Merry Christmas.

Mate , it would be great if you could post on the QUT site. I'll post on qurank now. The more responses the better.

Cheers
