Description

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.

Protection

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

13 bolts to the anchor, lowering with a 70m is fine. Easier than Job Review (11a) to the right (spoiler alert) if you can find the hold on the far right at the crux just above the roof. Jan 1, 2017

This is certainly harder than 11a. I called it 11b, but it may even be harder. It is very sustained above the roof at the 5.10 grade. A 70m rope is just right to get down. The climb is not 135' long. It is almost exactly 115' long Both the newest guide books list this climb wrong as far as length. This site lists it too long, too. Jun 15, 2015

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. Mar 15, 2013

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.
