Should public lands be a natural setting for extreme sports?

Clip: 09/19/2014 | 7m 28s

When an iconic geological landmark outside Moab, Utah, became the site of an extreme rope-swing, it captured the attention of the Bureau of Land Management. Officials are proposing a ban on rope sport activities at Corona Arch to evaluate the impact on the rocks and on others who might use the land. Jeffrey Brown reports on the rise of extreme sports on public land for our series Culture at Risk.
