Description

This is an unnamed route in Sven's book. Get Jacked starts to the left of The Good, The Bad & The Jacked but not on the detached block. Climb a jam crack for 20 feet into a cramped little alcove. From here use the sharp layback flake to a nice stance. Have fun with the decent amount of run out. On top of this platform, you're almost to the top, wonder if you have the right gear to protect the last move (Red BD C3), place it, and do a strange mantle to top out. Variations are certainly possible. Alternatively one could eliminate all features and focus solely using the offwidth just to the right (Hot Beef Injection). Possibly harder than 5.6 but better protected.

Protection

Good down low, none through the middle and barely any up top.

Andy, I can't decide if you mean route 59? If so, then I thought it was very well protected, it just needs big gear (#3-5 BD camalots). Jun 20, 2013

Doug, I looked at the picture you posted of Michael climbing and for whatever reason when I climbed the route I went left instead of right into the wide crack. None the less, either way you do it, it probably adds up to about 5.6, right? Jun 20, 2013

We stemmed across. No gear the way *you* went! but if you're not hauling big gear, it wouldn't really matter ...

I enjoyed it! Jun 20, 2013
