Description

This is a great powerful line up the steepest part of Digital Tower. The route overhangs about 10 degrees, and is very continuous. You will be the star of the day for the tourists at the firetower.

To get there, do the first pitch of Beta Sponge (10a) to a belay ledge at 80 feet. Jesus H. Cranker is the first route to the right of the belay ledge.

The climbing is hard immediately after leaving the ledge - and it doesn't get easy again until just before you reach the anchors, about 60 feet further up. The crux is thin and slightly overhanging - and there is definitely a pump crux. Just after the crux (about 35 feet up), there is one suspiciously thin flake that you probably don't want to pull out on too much.

Ha Ha - Jesus Hernandez; Boomer, that is a good one. The name of this rig is derived from a route in Big Cottonwood that used to be called JHCOB (for Jesus H. Christ On a Bicycle) back in the '70s. Nowadays they changed the name to "Jacob Wall" which is both PC and vaguely biblical at the same time. Sep 15, 2012
This is actually named after a Mexican climber friend of ours, Jesus (pronounced Hey-seuss) Hernandez, who can really crank.

I can't imagine where you could see a reference to anything biblical here.

Clearly, you didn't climb this route, or you could not have possibly rated it as a bomb. Three stars is insufficiently modest to describe this sport climb. Sep 13, 2004
