ANCHORAGE, Alaska - The National Park Service says it will review how it allocates permits to climb Alaska's Mount McKinley between commercial guided climbing operators and independent operators.

A 2006 Denali National Park plan established a seasonal limit of 1,500 permitted climbers on North America's highest mountain and allocated 25 percent for commercially guided groups.

The overall figure will not change but the Park Service will review the current allocation and its relevance to the demand.

The agency says interest in guided climbs is increasing.

The public can comment through Dec. 6 regarding the environmental review of permit allocations.
