Military Wall - Closed Routes

Post by bcombs » Mon Aug 30, 2010 3:17 pm

Can anyone confirm that Right Turret and everything right of it to BBBB is closed? The online guide has several that are crossed out (see pic), but these aren't. Subatomic does say it in the description though. I'm mostly interested in Right Turret.

So really only Right Turret and Subatomic are the two that are closed on this section?

yeah, I was on beene materal a few weeks ago, really the fence starts just to the left of right turret and ends just barely past sub atomic finger lock. Nothing for now is great, bring a brush though, if your jumping on beene material, give me a holler

Govt Cheese was on the outside of the fence several years ago and now is listed as closed. Was this closed post 2005?

Hey Ray (or Bill)--I know they're listed closed in the guidebook, but are you sure Jac Mac and Rad Boy Go are closed? They seem well to the right of the closure fence to me.

Beene Material is a bitchin line....

I don't have the hard copy in front of me but the pdf for the 2nd and 3rd editions has Government Cheese as being open. Jac Mac and Rad Boy Go are definitely closed.

Right Turret & Subatomic Fingerlock are the closed routes in this area. It has been a while since I've been up there. Just because a fence has "appeared to move" doesn't mean it's open. This was known by climbers to be an arch site even before the fence went up.

Perfect. Thanks, Capt. I wanted to check first before trying Right Turret.

Arch site? A stone fort made by campers? There is no one in archeology that thinks that thing has any cultural significance. How long is this farce going to go on? A

Could some one refresh our memories as to why these areas are closed?
