Complete Title: 
Cooperation in the European mountains, 3 : the sustainable management of climbing areas in Europe
IUCN Publication
Abstract: 

Rock climbing is a continent-wide phenomenon. Any ban on climbing in one country invevitably leads to increased pressure on sites in other countries. Thus, regional if not continent-wide approaches are essential to identify sites where restrictions on climbing may be necessary, and to justify, negotiate, and publicise these restrictions (which are often temporary or seasonal). This report examines the history of climbing and its social and economic significance. It describes the typical flora and fauna of the rock biotope. It presents the results of a survey carried out in 21 European countries, includes a number of case studies and puts forward a series of recommmendations for sustainable management of climbing in Europe
