I have just received word that the Joseph Wood Hill Memorial at Rocky Butte will be temporarily closed to climbers. I thought people might want to pass the word along. The way I hear it is that a piece of railing fell revealing that the rebar has rusted right through leaving the rock walls without stable reinforcement. This is supposed to be a temporary closure until the city can assess and restore this important historical site. Hopefully people will respect the temporary closure or a more permanent closure could go into effect. Sounds like surrounding walls are still open to climbing, just not the memorial.
