There is a long standing project called Godmaker in the guidebooks. J.Freak begins on Godmaker and goes right to finish on a different set of anchors. The anchors of this climb allow you to lower with a 70m rope. Godmaker breaks left and continues for another 60-70 feet to the top of the cliff. It is still undone (as of Sept 2012)

This route is a classic MC fitness route. Route starts on a large ledge about 30 feet up from the floor of the canyon. Begin with a brief, bouldery crux followed by 8 or 9 bolts of big moves with moderate to large holds. Find rests throughout this section and save some juice for the final 3 bolts of climbing which contains smaller pockets and crimps. This route angles up and right at the 2nd to last bolt to pull a bulge. The last 10 feet are easy to pump off, so be ready to fight to the top :).
This route is LONG and requires a 70M rope. Probably low in the grade.... esp with knee-bars.


Enter box and hike up canyon past RiboCon. This route is around the corner, on the left and starts on a ledge.

Spent the last 2 days working on Jesus Freak. WOW what an amazing line...so much fun! Unfortunately I wasn't able to redpoint before I had to leave Maple.

On my first go up, I found the fixed draws to be in pretty bad shape, and many were BD Spectra that are prone to rapid deterioration (and an occasional breaking). Ran into a couple of climbers that day at RiboCon who said they were probably from the first ascent party. Anyways, I removed them and used my own draws for my redpoint attempts. Not wanting to put back on a bunch of unsafe draws, I left the old ones at the base of the route (up on the ledge). Anyone know whose they are and if they want them back? I have friends in the canyon for another month or so who could grab them and return them?

Thanks! Jul 12, 2016

LOVED this little fella. Amazing rock climbing the whole way and killer swing for the kids! Jul 13, 2018
I've climbed over 300 routes at Maple and this one is probably the best I've done. The movement and position are so fun. Aug 16, 2018

Such a treat, this route is such a pleasure. I am glad to have done it. One note about the grade. How hard this route feels is strictly a measure of one’s endurance, which makes it difficult to put a grade on. Oct 13, 2018
