Fashion Catalogue Results in Bust

Capitol Reef(Hanksville Utah)- Have you seen the Patagonia catalogue? If so, you probably saw some pictures of Capitol Reef national park. So did some Park Rangers, and that began an investigation.  You see, the fashion shots included illegal climbing in the Grand Wash area. Rangers visited the spot in the picture and found climbing bolts had been embedded in the rock and determined that “trundling” — moving rocks to make a route — had occurred. Further investigation revealed two other routes were established for the catalog photography shoot. Two climbers in the catalog picture and another person who participated in installing the illegal routes were charged under the Park System Resource Protection Act. A Patagonia spokesman said the company is reviewing its location scouting process.
