Description 

Rather unpleasant climbing (through the knobbly squeeze chimney) up to the first bolt, then pleasant jug-hauling up through the 3rd bolt (at 30 feet) and up to the top of the flake. Standing up here is difficult and balancy, and since the 4th bolt is about 15 feet above the 3rd, there is big fall potential. You can place a sling here, maybe a small cam, not sure if anything will hold here. Stand up and just try not to fall, clip the 4th bolt, and fire through the crux to the anchor.

Location 

On the left side of the pillar, labeled.

Protection 

4 bolts + anchor

Route name 

"Geht schon" is a commonly used term in German. They use it to psyche up the climber, and also to say "it's okay" after something unpleasant has happened. The use of the term as the route name obviously refers to the scary as balls mantle between the 3rd and 4th bolts, where the belayer would surely say, "Ja, geht schon."
