Santa Barbara Rock Gym Cleared to Lead Climbing Tours in Los Padres National Forest

The Santa Barbara Rock Gym recently announced that it has become the first and only company approved by the Los Padres National Forest to lead rock climbing tours within the national park.

The locally owned Santa Barbara Rock Gym will be leading rock climbing tours at popular spots in the park, including sites such as Lizards Mouth.

In addition to rock climbing tours, the company will also be leading biannual cleanups of the park. During these cleanups, Santa Barbara Rock Gym plans to partner with different youth groups and work to increase environmental awareness.

The Santa Barbara Rock Gym is very excited about this prospect of being the only certified company to lead tours in the pristine park. It understands the responsibility associated with such an honor and hopes to give back to the park’s goals of increasing environmental awareness and education by running these cleanup and education programs.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
