Note: "Iron-Man Defense" of gravelpit means attempting to defend BOTH A and B for as long as possible before settling on one of them eventually. Typically it is done with a Heavy instead of sentry.

Here is a very good example (they defend from 3:50)

If you fail at A (should be impossible with demo setup), have some cap pressure at B (1 scout) while you seriously attempt to keep capping A with the rest. Eventually they will give up A and be ready to defend B, having won themselves some time but without a engineer, and maybe no uber (hard to grind efficiently with a heavy primary).

Sure way to fail vs iron man is to leave your medic alone in spawn while you all cap A

Have your combo meet them if needed, play like normal (team disperse when ubers are used, collapse when they fade). Ez.
