Tom, although it was a short visit this time and yes the valley plague seem to find my way. I am glad we got up there. The fall colors are great and some pretty good climbing too. Winter is just around the corner but, then once again spring and like you we shall return.
Great photos Tom! That was me and a buddy on Lunar Eclipse. It is a fantastic route, amazing rock (as in beautiful, not necessarily quality). We were having a blast up there and were sad to turn around, unfortunately we ran out of anchor bolts and the sh#t we were finding at anchors was quite a joke (and all original).
We will be back, it wasn't a bail, just a temporary retreat and resupply!
Good work on the LE bolts then, lads. I soloed that route in the years before I learned how to replace bolts, so apologies for not replacing any. You should have a go at Bad Seed next - Bill Russel's 5/16" buttonheads are still AOK.
