    With the chute being shaded and it being during a time of low pressure moving through the region , the ice was very firm for climbing on and I did not experience any postholing. I just had my crampons and a normal ice axe, no technical tools needed.

    The whole purpose of getting on this forum isn’t to “complain” to the Wilderness Association about how the Forest Service has closed the wilderness. The whole purpose is to maybe spark or maybe hint at a reason as to why it is closed because it makes zero sense and there has been no reasoning as to why thousands of acres of land is closed other than “safety from burn scars”. I’ve made many inquires to the USFS and have gotten no information. So no, I am just not on here to banter and complain. Just an outdoor enthusiast that is looking for answers.

    Very well said. The standard operating procedures for the forest service with no kind of oversight from them restricting public lands from us. How is this okay? Coming from myself who was on this fire and knows what burned and didn’t, much of the wilderness was untouched. I have pretty much stepped foot on every acre of this wilderness and it completely makes me sick how it is still closed. And now portions of the wilderness that were hard to access have burned so I am almost positive that easier access to these parts will never be part of the the future due to recent fires. Open the wilderness back up already. It’s been to long and the reasoning behind it being closed is just as dumb as half of the Covid rules in our world.

    Thank you I am right there with you. Very frustrating that the entire wilderness was just arbitrarily closed down.  I’m sure Covid 19 somehow plays into them closing it down as with everything else although it has no correlation. The forest has basically been closed for all practical purposes due to either fire danger, the el dorado and apple fire or the “pandemic”.
