Incredible photo. What was your setup?

Edit: I checked out the other photos you posted to Mountain Project - outstanding work! You've got some stunning photos here, thanks for posting them.

Thanks Jason, it was a 100 second exposure at f/4.5 and 13mm. The moon was near full as well behind me, so the face of the tower was lit up brilliantly. I used a headlamp to light up some of the trees around the base.

You may not remember, but I was at the tower with you last year sometime (~November). Do you recall, "Use the Black Foot!" ?

I was thinking that your name sounded familiar. The Black Foot rings a bell, but I can't remember what we were referring to...?

During Mike's late night ascent of Grendel, the guy that was with you (forgot his name), yelled up to Mike "Use the Black Foot!" on the 'Black Streak' route. Not as funny now as it was in our stupor that night...but it stuck in my head!

Oh riiight! That was cool. I've wanted to lead Grendel at night since then, but figured I'd better do the route more than once before taking that on.

Hey I remember that, good time. Sometime Supra and I are going to go there and see how many tower routes we can lead in the dark with a beer between each route. Anyone up for some designated belaying?

I'd pay money to see that on the stipulation that you start with a 40 of Mickey's (your fav, no, Mike?) before your first route. =)

While that is my favorite, that would definitly reduce the number of routes I could climb that night :)

This has to be one of the best photos of the Tower I've ever seen.
