ElCap Report 10/22/11
By Tom Evans
Yo… Indian Summer continues with its warm sunlit days and cool starlit nights. The Tree is maxed out now and will be done within the week, hiding in plain sight for the next year or so, until we are drawn to it once again. We’ve had a wonderful Fall climbing season, the best in recent memory. The high drama continues on the Captain for a few weeks more and then most of the climbers will depart for other places near and far. So enjoy these last few Reports, for the winter will soon take me away, and the long, welcomed silence, will permeate the Valley once again.
