This route does not suck. It is breathtaking. Sorry for the sarcasm. Now everyone won't be afraid to go get on it.

my 135 lb. skinny ass broke off the small 2 finger gaston (up from the jugs a move or two) last weekend. however, it still goes.

Gaston? I don't remember using a single face hold on the line. All crack for me.

Amazing route, ALL CRACK for sure!!!! i thought it was HARD for the grade. Waaayy harder than all that glitters(same grade), and harder than days of rage(12d). Just my opinion. I heard Ray called it 13a when he got the FA........???
SCIN said on January 23rd, 2009
Yea, I did call it 13a but I really had nothing to go by so I asked Matt McNasty what he thought. He suggested 5.12c so I went with it. Days of Rage was harder for me so I gave it 12d. I think other people who have sent Mr. Get it on Jones used a hold on the arete which I guess I missed. I don't know if that makes it easier or not since I didn't try it.
Sandman said on January 24th, 2009
i originally used hold on the arete, Then i found other beta(long reach off r.hand jam, left foot high and slamming r.shoulder into corner) made it WAY less physical and much better style. But... Different strokes.... lets call it 5.9+!!
SCIN said on January 25th, 2009
Yea, that's exactly what I did....the shoulder against the wall thing. 5.9+ sounds great. Good send man!

I could maybe go with 12d, but it felt easier than the 13a sport routes I've done.
