Here is my best explanation:

'first' is the definition.
('original' is associated in meaning with 'first')

'get over splintered railing' is the wordplay.
'get' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).
'over' becomes 'o' (cricket abbreviation**).
'splintered' indicates anagramming the letters.
'railing' is an anagram of 'riginal'.
'o' next to 'riginal' is 'ORIGINAL'.

'to' is the link.
