Sorry if this has been posted, just letting people know there's a pretty big forest fire in the Table Rock area. This will probably affect climbing for a while. See the link for up to date closure info:
Apparently authorities want to speak to a party that was camping at the Table Rock sites on Veterans' Day.
It's disgusting the number of campfires left smoldering I've rolled up to while camping and exploring. Whether in a steel grated campfire ring or rock ring, leaving a fire unattended is bad news. If you don't have the means to thoroughly extinguish a fire then don't light one! Hopefully this isn't the case but I wouldn't be surprised if it is.
