Good freaking climb!
Mostly pretty easy (and fun) climbing under / through / around the detached pillars leads to harder sustained face climbing up high. The bolts are a little scary, especially at the crux, and there's potential for ledge falls in a few places.
This has two new shiny bolts in addition to the original bedframe style hangers. I didn't count, but I think there are now 8 bolts total in addition to the anchors.
I thought this was easier than Red Devil (10d) shortly to the right of this climb. I suspect that's because Red Devil's crux is a fairly height dependent boulder problem, whereas Rip It's crux is sustained technical climbing, which I'm better at.
