Looks like access to the Ruined Castle/Solitary from Federal Pass and the Golden Stairs will be out of action for a while:

Fingers crossed that;
a) more pressure/work for opening other tracks/areas
b) the closure is not permanent.

Nooooooo! F#*K 2020!

I guess you'll be able to walk there from the other side once things are opened up again.

Must have collapsed towards the top where those geological movement marker things were.
