Start at the good triangular hold. Make a big move to gain the sloping rail. Powerful but balancy moves follow as you pull hard to get both hands onto the slopers.

Care is needed at the top.

Pads - watch for the awkward boulder at the base.

I can't confirm the FA details, but I think the name does refer to Julie De Jesus

FA was Jeff Schoen around 1988.

I assumed it was a big lebowski reference: the hilarious sketchy bowler guy named de jesus...

much less funny if its named after Julie De Jesus, but the 88 FA was before the movie so...

There are a bunch of good variations as well that are worth playing with.

Just make sure to pad it carefully due to the ankle snapper landing.

Trivia: Mick Ryan named this after Julie, but it had been done previously as noted above. As many people know, Mick named or renamed many Eastside problems when he published his guides (which isn't a bad thing really, otherwise this problem would probably be "unnamed" as most of the oldschool problems on the Eastside tend to be). Julie had actually done the problem starting at the Choice of Weapons start (AKA Choice of Jesus as it's now known, V6ish?). She didn't name either problem though.

The sloper is no more on this route. Looks like someone yanked on that skechy undercling and the whole thing gave way, or maybe they pulled down harder then de jesus and it ripped right off. either way big blank spot where it used to be, might still be possible but way harder/different now.

Not sure if anyone has done this since the break? If not, I snagged the 3rd ascent behind Charlie Barrett (FA) and Giovanni Traversi today. V7 feels about right. We all agreed it climbs better than the original. :)
