Description

When all hope is lost and the world seems to be crumbling around you, it's nice to know that Jesus is Real! If you can't wrap your head around Jesus, you can at least wrap your hand over the jug below the 4th bolt; Either way you'll feel a lot better about living.

Location

Just left of the steep dihedral of Little Lost Lion, which is just left of Rocket Man. 

Protection

7 bolts to a two bolt anchor with chain and steel, locking carabiners - please don't steal them.

[Hide Comment] This route requires excellent foot work. Continuous Hard pumpy sequence until you reach the Jesus jug by the 4th bolt. After that you do some powerful slightly over hanging moves until you can sit on the ledge, have a smoke and think about life. “The smoking lounge” After you rest on the ledge the Jesus made him self you travers left into the crack and proceed to pull the fun roof. absolutely fantastic route! =) Oct 2, 2020

[Hide Comment] Excellent addition to the area, very fun and packs quite a punch down low! After a pit stop on the smoking ledge it is NOT a gimme, good exposure and just enough steepness to keep your attention tight. Good eye and great work to the first ascension party! Nov 15, 2020
