Cave Rock

On August 27, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a US Forest Service (USFS) ban on rock climbing at Lake Tahoe's Cave Rock in Nevada, rejecting arguments by the Access Fund that the ban enacted in early 2005 by the USFS is unconstitutional because it closes public lands for religious purposes. The Access Fund does not agree with the courts justification of this closure to climbing while all other usershikers, picnickers, site-seers, and highway usershave been permitted to continue to use Cave Rock. The Access Fund is carefully reviewing the courts opinion and options for short and long term action.
