New “Climbers Below” Signs for Nelson & Creston

posted in: General | 0

After a few narrow misses involving items lobbed from the top of Pulpit Rock, the Climbers Access Society of BC and the Association of West Kootenay Rock Climbers recently funded new caution signs that have been placed at the top of the popular lookout spot in Nelson.

Two signs have also been placed atop the Goat Dam Wall in Creston where people have been known to stand and watch the rock climbers below them. No mishaps have occurred there yet but the organization wanted to be proactive.

The 12″ x 9″ signs read, “Caution: Rock Climbers Below. Please do not throw objects” and are made of an aluminum composite material that will withstand the weather for years to come.

Below are the signs in their respective positions:
