ACCESS Issue: Mt. Williamson

Postby Dodrill » Sun Jun 03, 2007 10:12 am

Friends, it's late notice, but please take a look at this issue and write a letter on behalf of all climbers to restore access to Williamson Rock, a major climbing resource for our SoCal brothers which has been closed. The Friends of Williamson Rock are working with the USFS. But the USFS wants to hear from you -the community- directly and have a public comment period open until June 6 (!). I just wrote a letter and faxed it in. It needs to be mailed as well, but the fax #is 661-296-5847


Friends of Williamson Rock,

NOW is the time to make your voice heard!
The USFS scoping letter has been released.

Positive comments from the climbing community are encouraged in the form of a written letter (preferred over e-mail).
Quantity is the key here, we need a lot of climbers to write in, so forward this to your climbing partners!

Some general writing points (keep it simple):

-The MYLF (Mountain Yellow Legged Frog) and climbing can co-exist.
-Climbers respect and care for the natural areas in which we climb.
-Climbers are willing to work with the USFS and other agencies to mitigate the problem (that’s why we organized FoWR).
-Climbers are good stewards of the area.
-Climbing is a valid and historical use of the area.
-Williamson is a very valuable resource to climbers (no alternative crag like it).
-Climbers support the “Proposed Action”.

Comments may be mailed to:

John F. Capell, District Ranger
Attn. Jonathan Schwartz
Santa Clara/Mojave Rivers Ranger District
30800 Bouquet Canyon Road
Saugus, CA 91390

Letters are due no later than June 6, 2007
