Defiantly Spicy!! Follow the holds staying left and right of the bolt line makes this slightly easier.
5.10 for sure if you stay plumb with the bolts. Shade comes about 3:30!!! Jun 21, 2016

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

Slab climbus maximus.

Not a sport route, somewhat run out.

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. Apr 2, 2010

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. Apr 1, 2010
