Local climbers have long benefited from easy access to remote zones thanks to logging roads and generous land use policies, but have struggled with the choice to look away as pristine valleys are stripped for timber.

Nathaniel Coleman and Drew Ruana are two of the best young rock climbers in the world, but even the world's best struggle on a boulder problem like The Grand Illusion, a V16-rated problem in Utah's Little Cottonwood Canyon.
