Climbing Information and Management Plans

Climbing presents unique management challenges due to its historic associations, the equipment used, the different forms of climbing activity, and the diversity of environments where climbing takes place. Management response to the effects of climbing activity will depend on many factors, including whether the land is public or private, the mission of the agency or field unit, and staffing or budgetary resources. Each natural area is unique, requiring land managers to exercise broad discretion in managing recreational activities.

This page provides climbing information and management plans for climbing areas across the United States and the Recreational Use Statutes of individual states.  For information on climbing in general, go to this page.
