Anyone know what the process is for climbs like these being opened?
I didn't bring a guidebook one day and inadvertently climbed this route as it's actually a few feet to the right of a fenced off area so I figured it was good. I was surprised (and embarrassed) to read that it had been closed when I looked it up since it's not actually above anything archaeological. I genuinely thought it was clear.
The route isn't exactly worth fighting for but I'm wondering if there are other routes that might be that are just indefinitely closed for archaeological sites that nobody except climbers have thought about for a decade...
