My friends drove up there this morning and the cable has been taken down. The top can be accessed. We will see how long this lasts.

The road was closed part way not even going to mine Sept 2020. Unknown if temporary or permanent.
Author note: We could not verify where or why the road was closed. 2019 (which is legal for 2020) MVUM says it is still legal with no seasonal closures.
