Everyone PLEASE take the time to follow this link and fill out a petition through the Access Fund to get more camping and better camping regulations for climbers in Yosemite. Deadline is April 18. The time is now. This is our chance. Be heard.

Following is per the Access Fund:

We need your help to define the future of Yosemite Valley.

The National Park Service has released its latest draft of the Merced River Plan, which affects many aspects of Yosemite Valley that are important to climbers—especially camping.

While this particular plan does not include new rules regarding specific climbing activities, it will affect everything else climbers do in the Valley, including: camping, transportation/parking, access to amenities, and possibly the ability to enter the Valley during peak visitation. This plan will permanently change how Yosemite looks to both the casual and longtime visitor.

Overall, the draft plan will improve the experience of climbers visiting the Valley; however the Access Fund believes that the ParkÂ’s preferred alternative could be improved in a few key areas. Please click through to learn more.

Please submit comments to the NPS to help define the future of the Yosemite experience. Comments are due by Thursday April 18th.

Bump. The title doesn't really help bring attention to this thread... How about "Free Beer in Yosemite" or "The future of Yosemite" or "Climbers banned from Yosemite".... Luke Stefurak

Do you think stock removal would ever be a part of Valley planning?

I can never understand why I have to breathe fecal matter pulverized to a micro dust while I get lectured each time I'm issued a permit about how careful I need to be with my own excrement. Do my shoes affect a trail as much as a 1000 pound animal?
