Setting up for the crux slab.

Upper Canyon access closed - 8p Mar. 22 - 5p Mar. 28 MORE INFO >>>


Get a Job fires vectorially up the South face of Highlander Crag 20 feet left of Job Review and negotiates the same roof. A 5.11 sequence comes a bit above the roof that is tricky, thin, and frictiony. While Get a Job and Job Review are analogous climbs, parallel, and ascend similar features, it is surprising how differently they feel climbing. Both pack a lot of climbing in 135 feet perhaps because both present very continuous climbing at 5.9/5.10 with brief and distinct 5.11 cruxes. If you are in the area, both climbs are worth a stop.


Bring 13 to 14 draws, double ropes, and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.

I think that if the face crux above the roof on the route to the right (Job Review) is 11a, this has to be at least a letter grade harder. I can reach the holds and still find this to be really thin, reachy, very strenuous.....plus awkward. The upper part of the climb above the crux is very fun fairly sustained 9/10. Happy New Year

The crux at the roof worked me over. Fell on lead five or six times. I thought it was at least a letter grade harder than Herb-A-Med-Veg-A-Matic which I on-sighted with out a worry, but it just might be that I need to climb routes like this more often and improve my sloppy foot work, that or get some arm extensions which are ridiculously expensive. So I guess I'll work on my foot precision instead.
