2nd Lt. Ralph Duby sits in his jeep at a gatehouse on the road to Bontac.  Since the road was only one lane wide and ran along the side of a mountain, the guards called the next gatehouse to see if it was clear.  This was done at several points along the road.

The road to Bontac can be seen as the small white line along the side of the cliff.
