As many of you are aware, for the second year in a row this past summer, Parks Canada closed a stretch of the 1a to vehicular traffic for cycling. Parks is now soliciting feedback to make the closure permanent. There are a number of climbing areas that are impacted including Johnston Canyon and Guides Rock.
