The climb was actually very fun. There are stairs going up to the middle of the crane, which were enclosed by a fence, making it fairly easy to get in. The ladders are very well protected with the steel rungs around them, but this makes climbing up with a backpack pretty difficult. I ended up slinging mine in front of me, and tied the straps behind me. The view from the top is definitely worth it.

Nice! We skipped those stairs entirely because we thought it exposed us too much. that ended up taking a toll on us, even for Btraut, the rock climber..

Yea, the ladders were a lot more taxing than we had initially expected. That being said, I've rock climbed before, so it wasn't too much of a problem for me, but it was much harder for my friends (especially if you start looking down). The stairs are definitely more exposed, but the cars stay on the roads closer inland. While we were in the barracks, we noticed that the "base" of the cars seems to be on the little triangle where three roads intersect, and they never go further out than that. We figured it was worth it.

Great first post you got there! You chose quite the risky spot for your first explore, but I’m glad you had a good time. I figured that they would be pretty strict about ex-military sites, but you’re the 2nd person on this thread that was let off with a warning. I suppose you can just be glad you weren’t spotted on top of the crane (I don’t think you’ll get away with the lost tourist card at that point, hahah). I believe the worst you can get in CA for trespassing is a misdemeanor, but don’t quote me on that. Anywho, don’t let getting caught deter your explorative urges!! We’be all been there. PS: how did you like that climb?






There are modifiers here that can make trespassing a felony - I know malicious intent is one modifier but there were 1 or 2 others I think. In no way trying to deter you, just something to consider!




Stealth: adj. designed in accordance with technology that makes detection difficult. Wraith: n. A wisp or faint trace of something

I recently looked this up, and it seems that the modifiers are: malicious intent, occupying property (living there), and refusing to leave when asked to.

Thanks for the information stealthwraith! It'll take more than that to deter me

it would have been so cool if there was an abandoned ship there. im pretty interested in stuff about ships so this caught my attention pretty quickly, also i like how you had some information on what the buildings are and such.

Reckless personal endangerment while taking comprehensive and detailed photos of a location that is difficult to access, and likely to result in incarceration if not radiation poisoning.

You can't tell at all that you are using Google translator! I am impressed!

I wish it was to string them up by their toes and fly a flag of our choosing from their ass, but until then, I will settle for: http://www.uer.ca/forum_banlist.asp

There are two basic ways to get radiation poisoning somewhere you explore:

1) go somewhere INCREDIBLY radioactive. I'd be awfully surprised at anywhere around here being that hot.

2) Breathe or ingest radioactive material.

If you wear a decent mask it'll keep the radioactive dust out of your lungs (presuming there's even any around).


Of course, if you live or work somewhere the level required to cause problems long term is much lower, so I'm not saying radiation is never a problem, but for explorers in the US wearing reasonable PPE I don't think it's worth worrying about.

Just came back from Hunter's Point crane. There's some kind of construction going on all over the naval base now. Dump trucks, barges with gravel, lots of construction workers after 9am.

Anyone knows what they are doing with the place?

But there seem to still be just 3 security trucks driving around in predictable pattern. We got in before dawn, timing the approach to get through the trucks, and on the way back just walked through main entrance
, and walked out the gate during the day, the construction workers didn't mind.

(none of my pictures seem to fit in the 100k limit on this forum)

Hosting your pictures on a site like Flickr or Imgur or imgbb and using the bbcode share option to add them to your post is what most people do. As for the construction, latest I know is they are still working on the environmental remediation, which should explain what you described.
