Dalai - you've missed the point, the regs apply to all parks under Parks administration. There is no practical commercial permit that would cover climbing activities (such as a yearly permit).

There is a interesting report on the net by one of the Black Diamond engineers who examined Dan Osmans ropes for the coronial enquiry https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/rec.climbing/gW92OrNs7_o
The cause of failure was believed to be friction where multiple ropes rubbed together , there were melt marks near one of the knots at the point of failure.
