August 2 2005. Large pine tree on the tree ledge at the base of the Arch has a yellow jacket nest in the roots. I uncoiled my rope into this area and had to retrieve it very slowly. Be careful. There is not much room to run!

By all means, whatever you do, don't kill any of the fucking yellowjackets. But if you do, don't mention it here. Relocate them if you have to. You are, afterall, in their territory.

Climbing on the South face of Stone in August is sort of like being roasted on a griddle.

5 years later these guys are still at the base of the great arch. I'm sure they will be back this year. I had just finished belaying a second and went to move to the great arch when I found out I was alergic to yellow jackets. Fun stuff. They were living under a medium sized flat rock near this same pine tree roots.
