The US Forest Service on Thursday announced a management plan for Lake Tahoe that bans climbing at Cave Rock, considered sacred to the Washoe Tribe of Nevada and California.

The ban takes effect September 2, according to the Forest Service, but public comments will be taken. All climbing items that have been installed on the rock will be removed.
