Hello Concerned Ice Climbers,
Recently adopted Travel Plans by the Gallatin National Forest severely threatens reasonable access to the world-class ice climbing found in Hyalite Canyon near Bozeman, MT.
Montana State University, and the Southwest Montana Climbers Coalition have developed a quick survey on ice climbing and will be critical in our efforts to document Hyalite's unique status of one of the world's premier venues.
The survey is located at: www.hyalitecanyon.com
We encourage you all to take a few moments of your time to complete the simple survey. No sign up or registration is required and your responses are protected by secure encryption.
We can not stress enough just how important it is for us to get as many participants as possible for this survey. Please spread the word to all your friends and partners interested in ice climbing, even if they have not yet visited Hyalite.
The data will provide extremely useful, if not necessary, information to present our situation to the Forest Service regarding the adopted Gallatin National Forest Travel Plan. If you are interested in reading more about this issue and the ice climbing communities reaction to this recent development, please visit www.montanaice.com/forums/index.php
and go to the Hyalite Canyon Ice Conditions page.
Thank you in advance for your time, interest and support. Again, the link for the survey is:www.hyalitecanyon.com
