I know this is not a sexy topic, but I'd love to talk with someone about the process of obtain a commercial guiding permit for either BLM Land or USFS forest service. I've done a forum search and don't see anything that seems to address this topic.
Additionally, does anyone know if it is possible to look up commercial permits for public lands. I assume since climbing guides operate on public lands, then the terms of their permit would be public. I'd love to know the conditions and price for leading commercial trips on public land. I'm not looking to lead in specific location, but rather do research on the process and state of permitting as a whole across the country.
