Wakely Mtn. Tower Restored

Please list Wakely Mtn. tower as restored. NYSDEC replaced the wooden steps and it is now in great shape! Thanks.

Re: Wakely Mtn. Tower Restored

Did they fix the guy wires on the structure as well? Was it painted? Was there safety fencing installed? Thanks for the update.

Re: Wakely Mtn. Tower Restored

I wouldn't say it's "like new". Don't recall there is safety fencing nor new guy wires nor painting. But definitely safe and stable in my book. It was a joy to see the new wooden treads on the steps. The old ones were definitely getting punky.

Children refers to the set of objects that logically fall under a given object. For example, the Aconcagua mountain page is a child of the 'Aconcagua Group' and the 'Seven Summits.' The Aconcagua mountain itself has many routes, photos, and trip reports as children.



Parents refers to a larger category under which an object falls. For example, theAconcagua mountain page has the 'Aconcagua Group' and the 'Seven Summits' asparents and is a parent itself to many routes, photos, and Trip Reports.
