The cables were there long before the area was a wilderness- the cables were installed in 1919 and the area was designated as a wilderness in 1984.
Maybe they could make TRASH historic too.
So just to be clear on your argument...an area is not a "Wilderness" until a governmental body designates it as such? I'm wondering because there are a few ancient texts I might quote from the first century that refer to a wilderness and I highly doubt it was "Designated" by their government.
Sadly, now they are protected... they should go, unless anyone who goes up there can just walk on up. Limiting people through the permit system simply makes it unacceptable for some of them to be there. The NPS destroyed the historic and original George Anderson route putting the cables there in the first place. Now... they are "protected" and so is the NPS revenue stream that comes with them.$$$$ wins every time.
