I am curious to get anothers opinion regarding whether or not it is permissible to run a conduit in front of a gutter?

the gutter runs horizontal in the enclosure...the conduit runs vertically right in front leaving just enough room for to get the cover off.

i dont like the way it looks and feel that this is a violation.

Art 100, definitions, has 3 different descriptions of accessable.
(as applied to wiring methods)
and
( as applied to equipment)
are what would be pertinent.

as these are definitions, and the NEC is known to have some definitional difficulty, the call would most likley be interpertational, by the AHJ.

My own gut is that if there is no OCPD's that 110-16 does not apply, after all, how many jb's do you see behind obstructions.

hope i've been useful....
