Does anyone have beta on the towers in the northwest corner of the academy, near the firing range? Closest road is Jacks Valley Road and sat. imagery shows dirt roads leading up to the formations. Oct 4, 2016
Are any nice looking rock structure open for climbing, or is there a designated area that the public is allowed to develop climbing on the AFA property? Dec 19, 2012

No, but there may be times when the base is closed, and there may be areas you shouldn't access (follow posted signs). Visitors are usually welcome on the Academy grounds during "normal" hours, for example, there is a visitor center that is open to the public, you can attend sporting events and parades, etc. There is a nice hiking trail to the summit of Eagle's Peak that anyone can do. You might have to show your driver's license at the gate, but the guards should be professional and friendly. Nov 10, 2010
