Is that light the end of the tunnel or a train?

These pics are from the first continuous ascent of Eagle Dance in 1980. Jorge and Joanne had just put it up over several efforts and were finishing up their work establishing Levitation 29 while we were giving this, their other classic route, a big nod of approval. The camera I took these pics with was an old el cheepo Instamatic - I really was a dirtbag and couldn't afford a real camera - that ended up in the detritus of my climbing gear for almost two decades before I refound it and had the film developed.
That trip, that had us doing Eagle Dance as well as putting up the Resolution Arete, Gwondonaland Boogie and a bundle of other fair to middling routes, has almost no photographic record. To my knowledge only these and a few others exist.

BUMP

this kind of thread (and the one linked up-thread) are why many of us lurk or post on this site, anyone got anything more? Super curious and trying to stay stoked while dealing with the tedium that is a rental house search down there...
