Coming up on UKClimbing from Alias Cinema is a four part video series "This Way", profiling Arc'teryx Athletes Jason Kruk, Will Stanhope, Jon Walsh and Will Gadd.

Here we have Episode 1 - Squamish - Genius Loci, featuring Jason Kruk and Squamish pioneer Hamish Fraser.

"In 1991, tallying more than 20 days in ground up style, Hamish Fraser, Peder Ourom and Mark Gandy established "Genius Loci", a stunning 5 pitch route leading up the Squamish Chief Grand Wall. Despite it's classic and legendary status, close proximity to the ground, and modest grade (by modern standards), the route has believed to have not been freed in a single ascent until 2012."
