Sorry but I can't see how a ban on climbing here means climbing will be banned everywhere. This is the equivalent of people saying that if climbers get access anywhere, we'll destroy all the art because we don't give a toss.

We have to be willing to talk to TOs, ask which ones need to be off limits and then respect that. The "it's my right to climb anything on public land" attitude totally ignores TOs land rights that were established nearly 50 years ago. It's about time we caught up.

Note: This does not mean we should not fight arbitrary or over-extensive bans. But if we have the support of TOs (or at least are not in conflict with them), that fight will be easy.
