Or, did you all do as many do out there, ASSUME that is was OK and went ahead and did the FA's/bolting?
Chief, you should drive out to the pass sometime. This isn't Josh, or Alabama Hills or Owens Gorge. There are no NPS facilities, there is no ranger station. There are no rangers. It's real desert.

According to this map which is readily accessible via the Lake Mead NPR NPS website, the area in question is clearly defined within the SPIRIT MOUNTAIN WILDERNESS as I see it.

So your claim of not being informed as to the Wilderness Boundaries....
And according to this readily available map, there is no wilderness area:

It shouldn't. The trails and rest of the climbing area were open as of last Sunday.

Craig....... when the tool comes to your local area to close it, how about we don't do anything about helping you with your local access issue.
You can always go to the Andes to climb.
