If a sport climb can be classic, this one surely is. A HUGE reach down low leads to continuous vertical edge pulling to the anchors. Great route, well bolted, and most of all, tremendously fun.


Look for a massive reach to a bucket above an orange overhang amidst the other bolted routes on the lower face of the Rock of Ages. This is where Liquid Jesus begins.


Bolts, about a dozen if memory serves

Solid for 5.11c. About 7 bolts.

I think the crux is not the reach move down low, but rather some thin technical moves through the dark band about halfway up.

Fun moves on fine rock. Jun 14, 2011

Wow. No wonder that reach felt hard.

Here I just figured that all the other 11a sport climbs I'd done were horribly soft... Jul 30, 2007
I would dearly love to see an 11a climber that can get up Liquid Jesus. It was rated 11d in the old guide but I would be willing to knock that down one grade to 11c if one must. May 3, 2007
