Help Save Lost Horse Crag from County Quarry Proposal, MT

The Lost Horse Crag in Montanas Bitterroot National Forest could face demolition if the US Forest Service agrees to a countys proposed quarry. Last mined in the 60s or 70s, the Lost Horse Quarry has since turned into one of Montanas premier multi-pitch climbing areas. See www.ravallirepublic.com/articles/2007/06/07/.... The proposed plan would expand the old quarry at Lost Horse, install gates, restrict access, and impose season closures from October through April annually for 10 years.
