The gate is always closed and there is a road that runs parallel to the wall. It would take ages to go around the premises and out to the beach or to get the gate opened.
Now I am all worked up thinking about the wall. I will have to go and have a look.

Hi, Ricardo:

Yes, the lift will only exist in front of the wall (toward the beach). Just behind the wall it will be neutral, further back from the wall it will quickly turn to sink.

It may not be a good idea to fly there if you lack access to the beach side of the wall. Retreival there is very likely from time to time.
