I haven't climbed Tennish Anyone? and there's no way I would have guessed that. Apparently the wonderful clues didn't even register.

Yup, tennish anyone.

This summer I saw a can in NP with the license plate 10S NE1. Yea, it's a tennis thing.

One may imagine hints that point to routes:

Second Amendment route – Trusty Rifle
Philadelphia's elite suburbs – Main Line
Realm of Charlie Parker – Birdland
Joe Louis's route – Brown Bomber
Benny Goodman's route – King of Swing
Nietzsche's Route – Beyond Good and Evil
The Hub – Boston


and on and on

That's called, "I really need to finish peeing back here before my second gets up".

No guess for the picture...but I once witnessed a woman peeing from the top of the first pitch of Minty. It must have taken a while to get there...

Unfortunatly, I've also seen poo and TP sitting in the crack behind the ledge at the top of the first pitch of Shockley's ceiling. I thought to myself: "hmm a perfect #2 placement, and the second forgot to clean it." (I didn't booty the piece.)

I know you guys are just kidding around but just in case anyone takes it seriously I want to make sure to state that the guy is not taking a whiz, he's just leaning back off his anchor as he belays his second off that anchor.

No guesses on the picture? I'll give a hint in a bit.

Not Asphodel.

Here's the hint: I'm not sure this is a route. The climbers told me they decided to do this overhanging corner instead of moving left to the finish of the route they were doing to the GT ledge. The corner is clean, and surrounded by lichen, so people obviously climb it.

I'll give you credit if you guess the routes on either side of it.

Hint number two:

It may not appear so from the lichen in the photo, but this is actually a very popular area of the Trapps. The photo was actually shot from a very well-traveled rappel station.

Here's a wider view:
