Nahanni National Park Reserve wants to hear from climbers

24 Mar 2010

Parks Canada would like to start a conversation with members of the climbing community to help inform the future development of a visitor experience offer that meets the needs of current and future visitors, as well as the development of a code of practice for climbing in the Cirque of the Unclimbables and other locations in the park.

The Cirque of the Unclimbables is an internationally renowned climbing destination, and since the expansion of Nahanni National Park Reserve, this area and other climbing areas, are now part of the park reserve.

Until March 31, 2010 Parks Canada is inviting all climbers and to participate in the Nahanni Forum. Please visit www.nahnniplan.ca to sign up and share your thoughts on discussion topics, such as:

· What should be the best practices for climbing in the Cirque of the Unclimbables and other climbing locations in the park?
· What do you think about the Code of Ethics that was posted by volunteers with Cirque 2000 project?
· What type of climbing experience is important you?
· Compared to other climbing areas you may have visited, what is unique at the Cirque that should be enhanced or maintained?
· Is there information you would like to either enhance or facilitate your climbing experience?
· What infrastructure is appropriate at the Cirque of Unclimbables and other climbing areas?
· What suggestions do you have to ensure a memorable climbing experience with minimal environmental impact?

Please help spread the word and encourage other climbers to join the discussion at www.nahanniplan.ca

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, comments or suggestions for how best to engage the climbing community.

Best regards,
