Rock climbing routes spark Wyoming dispute

 Wyoming rock climber’s installation of routes in a popular Bighorn Mountain canyon has the Forest Service concerned and the sport’s athletes divided.

“It’s a huge concern for us because we want to conserve the land for future generations,” said Sara Evans Kirol, spokeswoman for the Bighorn National Forest. “You can’t put it back. It’s gone forever.”

Law enforcement is involved, she added, because such actions are illegal.
