On Tuesday evening, July 15, 2014, Rocky Mountain National Park staff met with the commercial guided climbing community and interested stakeholders at the American Mountaineering Center in Golden, CO. The park is currently undergoing a review and analysis of contracting practices and policies regarding commercial guided climbing at the park.  This summer, an updated commercial services strategy for guided climbing is being developed and this meeting was part of an effort to incorporate stakeholder input.

The meeting helped staff better understand the demand for commercial guided climbing services at the park and find opportunities to meet the needs of visitors and the guided climbing community. 

Those who were unable to attend the meeting but would like to provide input for the future of commercial guided climbing services in Rocky Mountain National Park, please use our online public comment form at: http://www.nps.gov/romo/parkmgmt/planning.htm The form will be open for comments until Monday, July 28, 2014 at 11:59 PM MDT.

For further information please contact the park's Information Office at (970) 586-1206.
