the Boise Climbers Alliance, said Castle Rocks is considered a national or even international destination by many of the sport's enthusiasts.
The BLM's most recent proposal, he said, unnecessarily eliminates all climbing access.
Rock climbing is about risk. It is a test of personal skill and personal management of risk during each climb. If BLM wants to manage that risk for rock climbers, then there is no reason to climb rocks.
"When you go down there on Memorial Day weekend you will see people from other countries because it's a very Nike Air Vapormax Plus Tn well known intermediate rock climbing area," Colwell said. "We believe there are areas we could compromise on."

The 400 acre area known as Castle Rocks has been closed off and on to climbers since 2003, and may close permanently sometime this summer. Agency officials say they hope make a decision this month, depending how much feedback they receive from the public.

BOISE, Idaho (AP) The federal Bureau of Land Management may permanently close a popular climbing site in southeastern Idaho, over opposition from local rock climbers who argue the plan is too restrictive and was pushed through without stakeholder input.

Yes, we definitely need more rules and laws to protect us from ourselves.
Citing those and other reasons, a report from the BLM dated April 12 proposed closing the Cassia County area to climbers for good, although hikers and hunters would still have access to existing trails. Courtney said the plan targets climbing because soil erosion and vegetation destruction are most severe around staging areas, the spot near rock walls where climbers prepare for their assent.
significant sites, and his organization and local climbers came up with a plan that offered guidelines for when the BLM can close certain routes.
Courtney said the agency spent time combing the trail routes and climbing walls with the intention of finding middle ground with sport climbing enthusiasts. But unfortunately, Courtney said, environmental impact studies showed all the climbing areas posed at least some risk to resources the agency aims to protect.
Mike Courtney, BLM field manager in Burley, said both the Shoshone Bannock and Shoshone Paiute tribes consider the land sacred and are worried cultural resources could be destroyed if climbing continues. BLM surveys have determined the region contains important archaeological resources and artifacts, including spearheads dating back thousands of years.
