Ian getting it on.

Description 

A stout little route that will get your tendons working right off the ground, Get It On is known to be burly but a little technique would certainly make it a bit more reasonable.

Stick clip the first or second bolt and use a couple good holds to establish your self on the route. Enjoy the good holds because they run out quickly. Puzzle out a sequence from the many crimps above. Looks like there are many options but they are all quite hard, this is the meat of the climb for sure. A final long move gets you to a good hold midway up the climb and though its not over things ease up a good bit. Use pockets and crimps through here to gain a nice jug at the top and clip those chains.

Looked like holds have broken off in a few places. I don't know if the route has changed much since the guide came out. It feels 5.12d to me.

Location 

On the far right end of Main Cliff you will see a 50 foot tall imposing wall with a bit of a cave under it. Get It On is the left of the 2 hard routes that tackle this wall.

Protection 

5 bolts to 2 bolt anchor. Currently fixed with draws and lower-off biners.

the 3rd bolt kept coming very loose and i hand tightened it a couple times... i tightened it with a wrench the other day (as well as the 2nd bolt) so they should be good for a while so... Get It On!

For one reason or another this route no longer has fixed draws..

This route deserves more traffic - I never see anyone else on it. It's is as good as Venus imo (though I haven't sent Venus yet I have worked on it a bit). The technical crux (for me) is a funky long deadpoint for the left hand sloping crimp/rail using the sh*tty right hand crimp you clip off, then a hard lock-off and bump to the two right hand gaston holds. Mental crux was apparently just below the anchors where I have fallen twice from pumping out (go figure). When I picture an ideal sport route in my mind, I come up with something not unlike this route. As Lee says "Get it on!"....

PS - A couple bolts may need to be tightened on this route, the first one for sure (even though I started with the second bolt clipped).

A right drop knee makes the move to the right hand gaston waaay easier and super static.

The well-chalked lefthand sidepull knob near the start of this route (above and to the left of the first bolt) was flexing quite a bit yesterday. I'd suggest treading very lightly if you choose to use it, especially as a foot; it's not in a spot where you'd want to be surprised by a broken hold.

It might be secure enough to last a while (I'm not great at assessing this sort of stuff), but to the untrained eye it looked pretty iffy. And at any rate, the route goes fine without it, you just need to stay a bit lower while working through the first two bolts.
