Rockreation first opened 21 years ago, but this Monday its owners finally coiled the ropes, turned out the lights and shut the doors forever. It was the end of an iconic mom-and-pop climbing gym, and illustrates how sometimes explosive growth in an industry leaves some businesses in the dust. “After a lot of soul searching,” owner Jeff Clapp wrote in a statement, “I have come to the hard reality that the Rockreation Salt Lak...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

At any given time, at least one child is sitting in the tree. It is a community gathering spot. Usually there are bicycles on the grass and a parent is sitting on a bench in front of Salt Lake Monument. Monday a city crew cut the climbing limbs off the tree. I objected and was told it was done for safety reasons, that the tree was a liability.
