Sketchy news out of West Virginia for you this morning.
New River Gorge National Park and Preserve, the nation’s newest national park, posted to Facebook last week warning guests about throwing rocks within the park.
Apparently, climbers experienced multiple people throwing rocks from the cliffs at Diamond Point on the Endless Wall trail within the park. The climbers were dodging rocks left and right some 100′ below where the ignorant people were letting them fly.
What’s worse is that the area has signs posted telling visitors to not throw rocks in the area. I’m not exactly sure what the signs say, but maybe they need to be rewritten to something like this instead:
“HEY BUDDY. YEAH, YOU. DON’T THROW ROCKS AT NEW RIVER GORGE NATIONAL PARK, OKAY? YOU’RE GONNA KILL SOMEBODY CLIMBING BELOW YOU. DO YOU WANT TO KILL SOMEBODY? NO? OKAY THEN. PUT THE GOD DAMN ROCK DOWN AND JUST ENJOY THE VIEW. THANKS-New River Gorge National Park”
