Here is copy of my letter- feel free to alter it a bit and get your voice heard!
As a long time outdoor enthusiast and rock climber I have been visiting and climbing at Massacre Rocks for the past decade. It is a relatively quiet, albeit excellent area for rock climbing. The individuals that equipped the climbing routes here invested countless hours and dollars into developing this area in to a regional treasure. Massacre hosts more basalt sport climbs than any other single destination in the world, as far as I'm aware. The unique features, geologic setting, and it's historical nature make it a favorite for climbers of all abilities. Please realize that there is a movement within our climbing commu nities to bring awareness to listing of Massacre on the National Register and the 30-day comment period. Please realize that I speak for at least hundreds of users in a multi-state area (Idaho, Utah, Wyoming, Montana et al.), even if their voices are not to be heard in this short 30 day time-frame. My request is that Massacre remain open to the climbers and other user groups that cherish it.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
