Change in land management = a chance in policies. Not that this directly affects climbers (now). but there are similarities.

Get your jumps in before it becomes official?

There are HEAPS of arches that are veiw-only, can't they leave just one for swinging?

I guess you could argue that Looking glass Arch has a swing, but that isn't actually on the arch so I don't reckon it counts.

Dunno. Corona Arch is a pretty majestic arch. I really enjoyed it. I think I thought about climbing for about 30 seconds before figuring it was better to look at it than to climb it.

However, as far as access goes, I understand the "swingers". It's not so close and not so far away either, so it would make a good swinging arch.
