It is illegal to be on the railroad tracks. Hot springs goers do it all the time so it shouldn't be an issue but keep a low profile and stay off the tracks. As Jeff notes in the guidebook, it's probably best to hike along the river instead of along the tracks.
DescriptionStart in the chimney, climbing up to a fixed pin before heading left to a thread. Above, clip bolts on the steep face, climbing on good, incut holds that sometimes can be deceptively hard to read. In the middle of the route stay to the right of the bolt line before going back left at the top.
It is a pretty decent and enjoyable route that is a full 80 feet.
LocationOn the right side of the crag is a cave-like chimney feature. Git'er Done starts just left of the chimney and climbs the face above.
