Grand Avenue's distinctive crack.   Jug Run is the bolt line immediately left to the aspen tree in this photo... it essentially follows the arc described by the tree. Pocket Protector is the longer route on the left.   A sign that was nestled at the base of the climb at the time of posting.   Our rope hung on MK. The crux was between the 1st & 3rd bolt.   Mr. Presley obliging a fab buttshot on MRC direct. The gear looks weird b/c this shot is stitched together from a series of photos.
