Alias Cinema presents "This Way," a four-part series profiling Jason Kruk, Will Stanhope, Jon Walsh, and Will Gadd. Here, we focus on Jason Kruk and Squamish pioneer Hamish Fraser.In 1991, tallying more than 20 days in ground-up style, Fraser, Peder Ourom, and Mark Gandy established Genius Loci, a stunning five-pitch route leading up the Squamish Chief Grand Wall.Despite its 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.
