CLIMBING RULES & ETHICS has been in the making since the 1st International Sport Climbing Championship in Snowbird, Utah, (1988) when Dan Goodwin was the color commentator for CBS Sports. With sport climbing and bouldering now in the Olympics, climbing has become one of the fastest-growing sports in the world. Due to this popularity, the need for our community to be on the same page has never been greater. What guided our sport in the 1980s may differ from today, but many beliefs and values have remained the same. With more than 1,000 new climbers signing up daily, there has never been a more critical time for our community to be on the same page.
