The goal is to consolidate discussion of Fins-related issues to a central point, that we may more effectively eliminate some of the sub-optimal behaviors that are cropping up at this fragile location, as well as ensuring new visitors know how to follow community-established guidelines for parking, camping, and waste management.
At the start of this 2019 climbing season, the Fins stands at a rather pivotal point, with a convergence of rapid new development, growing national interest, and ongoing access review. It's essential that every climber visiting the Fins treads lightly.
For better or worse, the days of climbing alone in this remote alpine setting are long gone. Unfortunately, this crag is not well suited to handle large numbers, and it will not survive at all without climbers adopting best practices.
