(Abstract) This study developed a procedure manual and measured the impact at 16 climbing areas, totaling 241 climbs. Mapping showed the impact at the base of the cliff. Sport climbs had nearly three times as much impact as traditional climbs, as well as a different set of predictive factors. Overall, climbing impacted 0.01% of the area and 0.4% of the cliffline of the study area. Climbing causes little avoidable damage; so impact reduction efforts should focus on site hardening and actions to spatially concentrate climbing activities.  9087k v. 4 Jun 28, 2011, 6:02 AM Angus Lewis
