Ascent Trip Report

The gate to the Al Galail range (military compound) was closed. I later read that since 2019 the gate is apparently closed most of the time (unlike the years before).
I was disappointed, but then I saw that there was a gap between the left part of the gate and the ground. I easily slipped through and went to the range on foot (about 2 km). All the way the watchtower at the northern end of the range was visible. But I was quite sure that nobody was there because of the closed gate, so I was only a bit afraid of being caught.
