SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - More than 100 outdoor-recreation companies riled Utah's Republican establishment Tuesday by formally petitioning President Barack Obama to designate a national monument surrounding Canyonlands National Park near Moab, a major tourist hub for everything from mountain biking to navigating the area's famous slot canyons.

Leaders of the outdoor industry — including Mountain Hardware, The North Face and Patagonia — say they know they're going up against political opposition in Utah and want to take the idea to a national level.

It's interesting how selective these groups can be... a quote from the Black Diamond website... "Rock Climbing 2012 is all about travel—the places, the people, the culture, the transportation, the gear, the lifestyle, and, of course, the climbing. Get ready for a global roadtrip because Rock Climbing 2012 is going to carry you from Kyrgyzstan to Spain to Malta to Venezuela with a host of Black Diamond climbing athletes"

They support banning vehicle use and yet talk of travel.
