Comments: We were here Thursday 10/20/2016. All routes on the west and south face of the rock were covered with wasps. Wasps were also present on the Sugarbun. Perhaps this is because of the recent rain from the weekend.
Comments: Fire lookout tower burned down Thursday 7/30/2011. As a result, the road to the needles and the trail is closed until August 12. The closure is also supposed to be in effect for the Voodoo Dome approach.
