The computer freaked on me and wouldn't let me continue.

So... This route has 5 bolts, and is located on the South side of Turtle Dome.

Drilled on the lead Needles style using a Bosch (3/8" bolts).

Slab climbus maximus.

Not a sport route, somewhat run out.

Five bolts with a .75 Camalot protect getting to the first bolt.

The best way to locate this route would be to locate the Sledge Hammer. Wander south onto a ledge/terrace from the Sledge Hammer. Contour southward around Turtle Dome skirting the east face. At the point the south face comes into view move off the terrace into the gully on the right.

Now move a short distace west/nw along the south face until a small pinnacle appears. Losing My Religion is the bolted route just left (west) of the small pinnacle.
