Lost: Rock town

We were climbing at Rock town today when our pad  got swarmed by a underground yellow jackets nest near el bano going back toward the orb area. 

We blocked off the path with some branches from both directions. You should definitely not try to retrieve the pad. I'm pretty sure it's right on top of the best.  There must have been hundreds swarming all around it when we left it.

What kind of crash pad is it?

Its a Mad Rock Mad Pad, and I'm pretty sure its actually on the way from El Classico to The Bads, if you were to kind of hug that trail line.

Go back and get it at night when they are dormant.  I passed ground nests right in the middle of the trail this weekend at both Denny Cove and Deep Creek.
