New Route at the Puoux – Midnight Run, 5.13d

Logan Jauernigg recently completed a new route on the Fault Wall at the Puoux in Glenwood Canyon, creating Midnight Run, 5.13d. The route was an open project bolted by Joe Kinder, and Logan describes it as “really bouldery down low, the crux revolves around a razor sharp three finger edge, but after it rolls over into the headwall the climbing eases up and there is some really fun victory climbing to the top.”
