Description 

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.

Location 

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!
